Student can still currently use the old card for gaining access into buildings and libraries on campus, but if students want to pay to use the library printers they will have to use the new system of depositing money.
The cashless payment system replaces the university’s previous smart chip design. Students can log in using their Blackboard account or the designated machines located in the libraries to deposit money onto their card using a credit card.
