Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary based in Wake Forest, N.C., and campus card provider CardSmith have rolled out a new campus ID card program, the Southeastern 1Card, that will provide students, parents, faculty, and staff with access to essential facilities and services on and around campus. The new Card is being issued to all members of the college community this month.
CardSmith’s card program management service is replacing the campus’s old card system while adding new capabilities and features to the program.
In addition to official identification, the new card features a built-in prepaid spending account–Southeastern 1Card Cash–that provides a way to purchase food on campus, clothing and other items at The Locker, copies at the Library Copy Center, and goods and services at selected off-campus merchants. Students, parents and others have Web-based access to their accounts. The site features program information and an on-line value transfer service making it easy for cardholders, parents, or others to transfer funds to 1Card Cash from a debit or credit card.
Cardholders can also view transactions, manage preferences, suspend or reactivate a card, and more. Students, parents and others have access to a toll-free customer support center dedicated to the program and managed for Southeastern by CardSmith.
“We will be providing a significantly expanded and upgraded service, and actually spending less money than if we had stayed with the system we had,” said Wayne Jenks, director of Information Technologies at the seminary. “The web account center and value transfer service is going to be very popular.”
“We’re delighted to be doing business in North Carolina and look forward to expanding our presence here in the near future.” said CardSmith President Jay Summerall.
