ID+ Card

College identification cards have been taken to a new level with the introduction of the smart Penn State id+ Card. Beginning next spring, Penn State students, faculty and staff who are customers of PNC Bank will have the option of linking their id+ card to a PNC Bank checking account. The card can then be used as a MAC/ATM card. In addition to providing account access, the card can also be used for campus-related purposes such as entering residence halls, checking out library books and accessing meal plans at campus restaurants. The card is also a smart card which enables customers to store up to $99 of LionCash value for use at campus vending machines, copiers, laundry machines and at participating merchants. Through its University Banking program, PNC Bank offers the Student Plan, a package of accounts and other services for student customers, including a free PNC Bank check card that can be used with no transaction fees at more than 3,200 PNC Bank ATMs and to make purchases anywhere Visa is accepted.
