Every student enrolled in classes is required to have a College identification card (SurgeCard) with them at all times for security purposes. The initial SurgeCard is free and is available from the Student Activities Office in ATLC Building Room 204 (Clifton Campus), after a student has registered for classes that semester. Students also have the option of requesting a SurgeCard online using the "Surge Card Request & Photo Submission" e-form, accessed through Blackboard.
The SurgeCard is required to use some campus services such as the Library, the Fitness Center, computer lab printing, and admission to some student activities. Additional uses for the SurgeCard include the bookstore, food services, day care door access for qualified parents, and other services.
Every registered student receives a credit for $15.00 on their SurgeCard each semester to be used for printing documents in College computer labs.
To replace a lost SurgeCard, go to the Cashier’s office on the ATLC Building Second Floor (Clifton Campus) and pay a $10.00 fee. Bring the receipt for this payment to the Student Activities Office and a replacement SurgeCard will be issued.
A SurgeCard is required to obtain information about available financial aid funds that can be used to purchase books in the College bookstore. Financial aid funds are never deposited on the SurgeCard.
More information about SurgeCards is available from the Student Activities Office, or phone (513) 569-5747 or via email at StudentActivities@cincinnatistate.edu.
