The Lawrenceville School, a secondary to post graduate private school in New Jersey, has expanded its multi-function identification Card to include card production software from CardSmith’s RapIDcard system and to allow the card to be used off-campus.
The ID card was first launched last year with CardSmith and features a pre-paid spending account, called Big Red, that students can use to make purchases on and around campus. The account is now accepted at the campus store, the school’s online bookstore, post office, laundry facilities and nearby businesses.
Parents and students can access accounts 24/7 from a dedicated online account center to view transactions, add value and establish automatic allowances. In addition, the card program enables the school’s business office to make financial aid disbursements to eligible students.
The school upgraded to the RapIDcard system before the start of classes this fall. All resident and day students now have the new card. RapIDcard was acquired by CardSmith earlier this year with its purchase of Vision Database.
Founded in 1810, The Lawrenceville School offers a coeducational program for 815 students in grades nine through post-graduate, who come from 29 states and 35 countries. The School is located on 700 acres in the village of Lawrenceville.
