Caring for your Campus ID Card
HSU ID cards should be carried in a protective holder or wallet. Close proximity to magnetic fields (TV’s, cell phones, computers, etc.) may decode the magnetic stripe on the card.
Holes should not be punched in the mag stripe area of the card. Try to avoid punching holes in your card, as it may loosen the polycarbonate laminate covering.
To maximize the longevity of your card, please avoid doing the following which could be potentially damaging:
- Leave your card in the hot sun
- Bite it
- Habitually bend it
- Rub it up against another mag stripe
- Send it through the wash and dry cycles
