Don’t forget to pick up your new RaiderCard!

Reminder: All students and employees are receiving new RaiderCards as part of an ongoing commitment to campus safety and security.

Preprinted RaiderCards for faculty and staff are available for pick-up at the Raider Grille between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. TODAY through Friday (Dec. 19-21).

RaiderCards will also be available to be picked up Jan. 2 through Jan. 5, 2019.

The new RaiderCards will be used for parking, point-of-sale registers on campus, cash-to-card machines, vending machines, printing and in some cases door access. The new cards will be “contactless” cards, where you will tap instead of swipe the cards at parking gates.

Remaining balances will be transferred to the new cards following the end of the fall semester.

The new RaiderCards have larger photos, are easier to read, and longer names can be printed in full. The improved security measures allow the college to electronically control and monitor all exterior doors on campus. As a result, new building access hours will be posted in the online center and additional information will be sent prior to the start of Winter 2019.
