I-Cards can also function as ATM cards through IUP’s banking partner, PNC. Students will need to open an account with PNC and ask for their I-card to be activated as their ATM card for the account.

For more information on using your I-Card as a PNC ATM card, please call PNC at 724-465-5582 or visit the PNC website.
