What is the OneCard?


The Citadel's OneCard is the school's new multipurpose campus I.D. card that functions mainly as a campus debit card.  It replaces all previous versions of Citadel I.D. cards.  It is your official identification while you are at The Citadel. Falsifying, altering, or misusing your own or anyone else's OneCard in any way is strictly prohibited and illegal. It becomes void upon graduation, interruption of enrollment, or termination of employment.




· There are two tracks on the One Card.

o One is your 'Restricted' Account.  Formerly known as the QM or Quartermaster Account, your Restricted Account ($2,970 for freshman and $937 for sophomore, junior, and senior cadets per semester) is automatically loaded as a release from tuition.  Your Restricted Account can be used to purchase books, school supplies, your original issue from the Cadet Store, uniform issue and haircuts.  Once you have spent the Restricted Account for that semester, you will need to use the 'open' account on your One Card. 

o The 'Open' Account on the One Card can be loaded with additional funds for use at campus facilities.  Presently, you can send a check to the ‘One Card Office’ or go online via the Lesesne Gateway's Campus Life Tab and that amount will be loaded on your 'Open' Account.  This coming fall 2011, we will have a contest to name the Open Account.  Please stay tuned for updates.
