Using the Digital Eagle ID on Your Apple Device

  • Your device must be powered on, but it does not have to be connected to a Wi-Fi network. Some devices (iPhone X models and later) will still work for a period of time after your battery has been depleted.
  • Hold the top of your iPhone or the face of your Apple Watch against the reader to use your digital Eagle ID.
    • For iPhones released after the 6/6 Plus, Express Mode allows you to use your digital Eagle ID  without unlocking the device with a passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. Just tap your device against the reader to recognize your Eagle ID.
    • For iPhone 6/6 Plus, double-click the Home button, select your default payment card, and select your Eagle ID. Verify your identity with Touch ID, then tap the top of your phone against the reader.
  • To display your digital Eagle ID, open Apple Wallet and select your Eagle ID from your saved cards.
  • To see your Biola University ID number, go to Apple Wallet, tap your Eagle ID card, then tap the three dots (…) in the lower right corner and scroll down to ID#.
  • To add funds to your accounts in the eAccounts app, first save a payment method at the eAccounts website at biola.edu/eAccounts
    • Make a deposit via your desktop or mobile browser.
    • After completing the deposit, there will be an option to save your credit card information.
    • Once you have added the card information on the eAccounts website, that card will be available in the eAccounts app for future deposits. If you have already used eAccounts to access your digital Eagle ID, you will need to sign out and back in to update the saved payment information.
