Gorilla CardThe PSU Gorilla Card is the official photo ID card for Pittsburg State University. All students, staff, and faculty will need this card whenever asked to present university identification. You are able to open a university account, called Banana Bucks, through the Gorilla Card Office located inside the Overman Student Center. Funds in your Banana Bucks account may be used to purchase a range of services. The card may be used all over campus. To see a list where you can use the card, click here.


All students, staff, and faculty will have a Gorilla Card made with their photograph and ID number. To receive your card, just stop by the Gorilla Card Office between 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Bring your driver's license or other valid form of identification. There is no cost for your first PSU Gorilla Card.

  • Guest Deposits: Your family and friends can make deposits into your Banana Bucks Account.

Use the 9-digit Pitt State ID Number on your Gorilla Card to login to your Gorilla Card Online account.  Your 9-digit ID Number is the same ID Number you use for GUS, just add two or three zeros to the front to make 9 digits.  Example: If you use "0123456" for your GUS Login ID, your 9-digit ID Number would be "000123456".  You will use the same password you use for GUS.

Important news for your parents, family and friends. Deposits can be made to your Banana Bucks account without a login using the Guest Deposit feature. The 9-digit PSU ID Number for the account and a valid credit card is all that is required.  Please keep in mind, Banana Bucks can be used on-campus only and is different than your account with Commerce Bank, which can be used both on- and off-campus.
