NC State Introduces New Campus ID Card Design


NC State is introducing a new design for its campus ID card. The new card will be issued to all new students and newly hired staff as well as those seeking replacements for lost cards beginning in June 2018.

“The new design is in response to a number of needs related to our campus card,” said Randy Lait, Campus Enterprises senior director for hospitality services. “First it has a number of improvements to security features, such a larger photo, larger text for name and university affiliation and a hologram of the new university hallmark. It also has a new barcode, legal name and card number on the back.

“Second, it is programmed to allow cardholders to connect it to a PNC checking account should they choose to do so,” he added. “Third, it has a protective overlay on the front and back of the card that will keep the cards looking newer longer.”

Existing campus cards, which feature the NC State Belltower, will remain functional. The university will not be replacing cards for those

who already have an ID card.

“Our incoming students will get the new card at orientation.  Anyone who wants to replace their current ID card with the newer style card may do so at the Wolfpack One Card office in Talley Student Union,” Lait added.  “The fee is $20, which may be waived if you are getting the new card in order to link it to a PNC account.”

The Wolfpack One Card Office has temporarily relocated to the lower level of Wolfpack Outfitters while its permanent space on the main level undergoes a renovation to convert a portion of the space into an on-campus service center for PNC Bank. It is expected to re-open in early June.
