Get Familiar With Your ZAGCARD

Your ZAGCARD is your connection to resources on and off campus.

Proper card care is essential. There is a chip inside the card with an antennae that wraps around the border of the card and a magstripe on the back of the card that needs to be read.  You should keep your ZAGCARD with you at all times and never share it.

Important ZAGCARD care tips

  • Do not:
    • bend card or punch a hole in the card
    • place labels or stickers on the card
    • store the card in direct sunlight or expose to excessive heat
    • use as an ice scraper
  • If attaching your ZAGCARD on a lanyard, a hard acrylic case is recommended.
  • Rubbing the card directly against materials such as leather can dull the finish making the text, image and magnetic strip difficult to read.
  • Keep your card away from electromagnetic fields such as cell phones, microwaves, televisions and other cards with magnetic strips.
  • Remove your ZAGCARD from your phone case prior to charging, if using a wireless charger.

A replacement fee will be need to be paid for cards that have become damaged due to misuse or improper care.
