The Cedarville University located in Dayton, Ohio has teamed up with Fifth Third Bank to offer students, faculty and staff a combined campus ID and debit card, according to the Dayton Business Journal.
The new “cedarville1card” enables university cardholders access to campus facilities, meal plans and scanning into chapel. In addition, cardholders can link their campus ID to a Fifth Third Bank checking account so that it can be used for ATM and pin-based debit card transactions.
“The cedarville1card allows us to expand the functionality of our campus ID, providing convenience for our students,” said Mark Biddinger, Cedarville’s director of accounting. “It also allows us to streamline our payment operations and disburse funds including financial aid directly to a student’s checking account.”
Fifth Third Student Checking features no minimum balance and no monthly maintenance fees. Parents and students can also register for free e-mail and mobile alerts.
