Clearwater Christian College in Florida has implemented a One Card system from Heartland Campus Solutions that gives the school flexibility to add services as needed.

It also includes Heartland’s Give Something Back Network, that enables students and parents to put money on their student IDs and use them to make purchases at Centre Court and select off-campus merchants. Both the student and college receives cash back that goes towards funding student scholarships.
