Visiting patrons may purchase a Visitor Card from value port readers which are located throughout campus.  Visitor Cards allow patrons to participate in the same Cardinal Cash program that is extended to students and employees.  The cost of each visitor card is $2.00. 

When purchasing a visitor card from a value port reader please follow the instructions displayed on the machine carefully.  Visitor card purchases are non-refundable.

Visitor cards can be revalued online, at the Cardinal Card Office, or at any Value Port machine.


To print and copy on campus Departments may purchase a Department Copy Card at the Cardinal Card Office.  These cards allow departments to add funds into an online account which is restricted to printer and copier use.  

The cost of each card is $2.00. Department Copy Cards can be purchased and revalued with either a Department ProCard or a signed IUT.  Departments can also revalue Copy Cards online

If a Department Copy Card is ever lost or stolen, the Campus Card Office should be contacted to place a hold on an account to prohibit purchases.  If a card is not reported lost or stolen, departments are responsible for all purchases made with their Department Copy Card.
