Mobile Credentials

OneCard replaces traditional ID cards with mobile device-based credentials, enabling campus communities to provide the convenience of door access, event check-ins, and payments with declining balance functionality at students’ fingertips.

Check-in Options

From class attendance to permission-based access to labs and buildings, dorm and residence hall access, and sports and cultural events, OneCard gives students campus-wide access.

By analyzing data generated through student check-ins and activity, administrators can gauge student attendance and engagement. Potential problems with balancing school and work or acclimating to campus life can be identified and addressed sooner, putting students more at ease and more aware of resources that can help them avoid unnecessary withdrawals.

Additional OneCard credentialing uses:

  • Library checkouts
  • Equipment reservations and rental
  • Campus services management
  • Facility reservations
  • Vehicle registration
Mobile screen with 360u check in.

Declining Balance Options

While meal plans have used declining balances for decades, today’s declining balance cards offer uses and functions well beyond dining. Now you can issue students a “closed loop” card that functions like a credit card but avoids merchant card processing fees. Such cards provide  parents with a convenient, trackable way to add money and monitor spending for maximum transparency and accountability.

Accepting campus cards as a payment method also centralizes payment and makes purchases more convenient for students, faculty, and staff, who avoid fees associated with traditional credit/debit card sales.

Additional OneCard declining balance uses:

  • Dining
  • Bookstore purchases
  • Ticket sales
  • Vending machines
  • Laundry facilities
  • Events
  • Copies and printing
  • Transportation
  • Parking
  • Ticket fines
