Frequently Asked Questions
I want to use my University of Pennsylvania PennCard as an ATM Card - where do I start?
It's easy - all you need to do is:
How do I link my University of Pennsylvania PennCard to my PNC account?
You have three options for linking your card. No matter which you choose, it should only take a few minutes to "get linked."

Your unique PIN enables your PennCard to function at ATMs and retail locations that accept STAR for any PIN based transaction.
This PIN is separate from the one you may have selected for your PNC Bank Visa®Debit Card. But you can choose whether you want the same PIN for both or make them different - whichever makes you more comfortable.

It is very important to remove the account links attached to your PennCard as soon as you realize your card has been lost.
