Minneapolis Community and Technical College is integrating new capabilities to its student ID card, now serving as both a debit card and parking card, according to City College News.
In an interview, Gary Westerland, director of auxiliary services, said students can use Maverick funds stored on the card for purchases in the MCTC bookstore, the cafeteria and Josephine’s Café. Students and parents can go online to add money to their Maverick accounts or parking funds via credit or debit card.
Cardholders can add money to their parking account and use the card for the MCTC parking ramp, which will cost $2.50 for the day instead of $5.00 cash. Metro State parking facilities in the Twin Cities also accept the card.
Westerland hopes to offer a twelve percent discount on food purchased with the card. He also plans a prospective bank partnership with MCTC, enabling campus cardholders to use their student IDs as debit cards with participating local businesses.
