How long does it take for me to receive my card?

Students will receive their card by mail sent to their permenant address. Replacement cards are mailed in 5-9 business days. Faculty and Staff receive their cards during New Employee Orientation.

What if I receive a card with no picture?

Visit the Colonel 1 Card Office to have your picture taken. Activate the card that you have already received and another one will be mailed to that address. There is no charge for this second card.

Students who have set up their Colonel 1 Card to utilize the available debit card feature may use their card wherever MasterCard is accepted. Funds must be deposited into the student’s account prior to usage.


The University ID card must be presented for identification purposes at the request of an agent of the University when the agent is acting in the performance of his or her supervisory or security function (for example, examination proctor, University police officer, residence hall director or adviser, recreational facility supervisor, ticket takers, ushers). Any student refusing to provide the University ID card when requested by an agent of the University may be subject to discipline.
