HCC Campus Card (Student I.D.)

At the start of the spring 2016 semester, Student I.D. cards will function as an HCC Campus Card and there will now be a charge for printing and copying services on campus.

All new and returning full-time and part-time students must have an HCC issued photo ID. All IDs must have a current semester sticker on the back to be valid. To obtain an HCC Campus Card (Student I.D. Card), present your class schedule and another form of photo ID. Campus Cards (Student I.D. Cards) can be obtained in the Student Center.

The HCC Campus Card (Student I.D.) has the capability to allow students to preload funds to use toward food services and printing and copying services on campus. Students can log in to their HCC Campus Card account at any time to add value, request funds from home, view transaction history, update contact information, and manage other preferences.

Funds added to an HCC Campus Card account can be used toward purchases at any of HCC's three eateries or can be transferred to a PaperCut account for printing and copying services on campus. Students will need to separately log in to their PaperCut account to transfer funds from their HCC Campus Card account to their PaperCut account (see Printing and Copying Services below). When $50 or more is added to an HCC Campus Card account, students will receive an additional 10 percent.

The HCC Campus Card (Student I.D.) can be used at the following locations:

  • Valley Eatery
  • Hilltop Grill
  • Hawk Café
  • All HCC Printers and Copiers (PaperCut account)
  • In the future, the HCC Campus Card will be available for use in the HCC Campus Store.
