Students with a projected credit balance for the upcoming Course period (as determined by Student Financial Services), will have up to $2,000 placed on their RMU ID Card as a bookstore voucher for exclusive use at the Barnes & Noble Campus Bookstore in Moon Township. Bookstore vouchers can be used for educational related purchases using excess financial aid.
After the add/drop period, the bookstore vouchers will be cleared off of the RMU ID Card and any remaining funds will be credited back to the student account and a refund will be processed according to the policies and procedures of the Student Financial Services Department.
The RMU ID Card is your key to campus dining.

Online Account Access
Because the RMU ID Card is unique to every cardholder, the 16-digit number given is part of an access code needed to enter the Sentry Secured Services area of the RMU website.
Using the last 10 digits of the RMU ID Card, along with the last 4 digits of your Social Security number and birth date, online accounts can be activated at the Robert Morris University website. www.rmu.edu/activate. Once this initial step is complete, a user name and password can be created, so it is not necessary to memorize the RMU ID Card Number.
Once a user name and password are created, students can start using the E-Mail address and account Robert Morris University has provided for them. This address will be a primary means of communication and should be checked regularly. Students will also have immediate access to the secured area of the website. Access to these pages will allow students to view their grades and obtain other information specific to them. Things such as financial information, official schedules, registering, and paying for classes will are available through this secured area.
You must present a valid RMU ID Card in order to borrow books and research materials from the University’s library in Moon Township. The magnetic stripe of your card is encoded with information required to borrow books from the library. Cards that are damaged or unreadable will not be accepted.
