Hillsborough Community College is working with Heartland Payment Systems’ SolutionsSM to develop and implement is first ever campus card program.
With five campuses throughout the Tampa area, the community college will issue more than 30,000 of its new Hawk Cards at the Dale Mabry campus. Hillsborough’s Hawk Card program is built on Heartland’s Campus OneCard platform and designed to provide students, faculty and staff with a tool to access a multitude of on- and off-campus services.
The Hawk Card is required to print and make copies on-campus as well as access library services, parking facilities and student housing centers.
As part of Heartland’s Give Something Back Network, the Hawk Card will also serve as an FDIC-insured, prepaid card that enables cardholders to make purchases on-campus, at the bookstores and dining locations, as well as off-campus at participating merchants. The Hawk Card will be accepted at many local merchants around campus including Bennigan’s, Subway, CVS and across the country.
With the Heartland’s Give Something Back Network, students aren’t the only ones who receive benefits. Participating merchants pay a reduced fee for processing transactions made with the Hawk Card, saving on every transaction.
The Dale Mabry campus will be the first to receive their Hawk Cards and the program will be distributed to the other four campuses over the following weeks.
