SIUE's Cougar Card gets an upgrade

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Sep 16, 2010  ||   

Students at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville will soon be able to add money to their Cougar Cards from any computer with Internet access, according to the university’s student publication.

SIUE students use money on these cards to purchase food from vending machines, pay for parking and to copy and print documents around campus.

Students currently add funds to their Cougar Cards via machines in laundry rooms of the residence halls and other areas around campus. The machines only accept cash, something not all students carry with them. Once the system is online, the campus plans to do away these machines.

“Students won’t have to come in and make deposits, they can just go online,” said Lora Miles, associate vice chancellor of student affairs. “And parents wanting to make deposits can just do it online and give their kids some extra cash.”

Miles said the online system should be up this spring and they will begin phasing out the CSVT machines soon after.
