ISUCard, building access card evolve into one

The functions of the ISUCard and the white building access card have been combined into a single card with dual technology.

The new ISUCard with dual technology will be issued to current cardholders only if one of their cards is lost, stolen or no longer is functioning. In the case of a malfunction, both cards should be turned in to receive the new ISUCard.

The entire campus community will not be recarded, said Maggie Hamilton, manager of building access services. Existing ISUCards and white building access cards will continue to function.

Deactivate lost or stolen cards

Employees whose ISU Card or building access card is lost or stolen now can deactivate either card via AccessPlus. Log in to AccessPlus and select "ISU IDs" in the left column of the AccessPlus home page. Follow the link for card deactivation.

Hamilton said employees should deactivate cards immediately when they discover they are lost or stolen. Then, visit the ISUCard office, 0530 Beardshear, on the next business day for assistance with a new card.


More information about the ISUCard with dual technology is available on the ISUCard web site.
