Know Your Card
The top magnetic stripe is a hologram. Use this stripe to access funds in the activated Money Network™ Discover® account. The cardholder must activate the account and funds must be deposited to it prior to use.
The bottom magnetic stripe is used for campus privileges assigned to the card such as: meal plan, QuickCash, library card, print stations, copiers, and access to buildings and labs as assigned.
Embedded in the card is a felica chip and antennae that allows for a contactless entry at most locations. If the card is bent or damaged, the contactless function will not work.
How to Care for Your Card
Your Quick Card is designed to be used for your entire academic stay with the University given normal usage and will remain active until you graduate or leave the University.
Here are some tips to keep your card in top condition:
- Never store your ID card in the direct sunlight or expose it to excessive heat.
- Keep your card protected. Don’t let it get scratched, chipped, cracked, or bent. We recommend carrying your card in a sleeve or keychain cardholder.
- Do NOT bend, fold, or punch holes into your ID card. Doing so damages the contactless function of the card. Replacement fees will apply.
- Keep your card away from electromagnetic fields such as microwaves, televisions, telephones, and stereos.
