Q: What can my UCO ID cards be used for?

Q: Is there a cost for replacing a lost or stolen UCO ID Card?

Yes. Both the Central Card and the Bronze Card have a $15 replacement fee. Because our new card system is so much smarter than our previous system and being utilized for so many purposes across the campus it takes more resources to maintain. Please note: Each card contains a card number unique to your student or staff record. If your card is lost or stolen, you must report it immediately. Contact Campus Card Services for more information

Q: If I want to keep an ID in my wallet and another in my gym bag can I get more than one card?

For your protection our campus onecard system only allows one ID card per person. If you have more than one ID card made only the newest card will function with UCO's systems. If you find an old lost ID after having a new one printed the old card will have been deactivated. A deactivated card won't get you into your residence hall, the Wellness Center, or work for any other services on campus.

Additionally, any “old” versions of the UCO ID (printed before May 2013) have been retired and are no longer accepted as a valid university ID.

Q: What is a Central Card?

If you want a debit card that can also serve as your university ID then you are looking for the Central Card.

Your first option when selecting a refund preference is always to direct the funds to any bank account of your choosing. You do not have to have a Central Card or a BankMobile Vibe Debit Card.

Q: Where can I use my Central Card to make purchases?

The Central Card is accepted at millions of Visa® locations worldwide.

The silver stripe at the top of the card is for banking functions; the black stripe at the bottom is for university functions.

The Central Card is NOT a credit card; it is a Visa® check card linked to your MidFirst Bank Broncho Checking Account.
