The Redbird Card machine at the Library does not accept debit or credit cards, but there are other ways to add money to your Redbird Card:

  • Use your debit card, credit card, or E-Checks to add money to your Redbird Card online through My Illinois State.
    • Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted online. 
    • A minimum of $10 is required when adding funds online to your Redbird Card.
    • Funds are available in your Redbird Account within approximately 20 minutes. 
  • Go to the RedBird Card Office or the Cashier’s Office in the Student Accounts Building to add money to your card with cash (coins or bills) or a check.
  • Use the ATM on Floor 2 of the Bone Student Center across from Qdoba to get cash to add to your card at the Redbird Card Office, Cashier’s Office, or the Redbird Card machine at Milner Library.
