New Student UCard Pricing Effective August 28th

August 28, 2017

Effective August 28, 2017 the cost of getting new or replacement Student UCards will increase by $5.00.  

  • The cost for an initial UCard for CPE (Continuing and Professional Education) Student UCard will increase from $30.00 to $35.00.  (There is still no cost to non-CPE students for their initial UCards, as those costs are covered by their entering fees.)
  • The normal cost of replacing a Student UCard will increase from $25.00 to $30.00
  • The discounted cost of replacing a damaged UCard (so long as the card is the most recent card, and turned in when purchasing a replacement) will increase from $10.00 to $15.00.

 
This is the first increase to Student UCard pricing in over seven years and is directly related to the the upgraded technology available on the new cards.   In support of new and upcoming door access initiatives on campus, the memory capacity of the smart chip on the cards has been increased sixteen fold, raising the production cost of these cards. Upgrading the hardware on the cards now positions the University to take advantage of new card-based technologies as they emerge, such as the door access application currently being implemented.
