Surge Cards

Surge Card

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 Student Activities, in Room 204 of the ATLC building (Clifton Campus), after a student has registered for classes that semester.

The SurgeCard is required to use some campus services such as the library, parking, and fitness center, and for admission to College sports activities. Additional uses for the SurgeCard include the bookstore, computer lab printing, food services, vending machines, day care door access for qualified parents, and other services.

Every registered student receives $15.00 on their SurgeCard each semester for free printing in College computer labs.

To replace a lost SurgeCard, go to the Cashier’s office in the Main Building (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.

Parking privileges can be added to a SurgeCard after the parking fee is paid online through the student's Cincinnati State account.

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.
