Get Your Card
For the Fall 2022/Winter 2023 semesters, all exterior campus building doors are locked and require a OneCard to gain access to the interior of campus buildings. This means that all incoming students (or returning students who may not have accessed campus previously) must apply for their OneCard as soon as possible. You can do so using the online OneCard application portal. Once your application is approved, you can pick up your OneCard by visiting the OneCard Office at POD-48. If you have any questions about applying for a OneCard, please contact that OneCard Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
