Hey! What Is A STLCC HigherOne Student ID Card And Where’s my Money?!

by Dee Brandy of the Forum

Has this question crossed your mind as an STLCC student? Well, I have the answer to this question along with some very important and helpful information for you. All students who are either eligible for financial aid or have paid for classes by another method must have an STLCC HigherOne Student ID card. Your student ID allows you access to the computer labs around campus and to check out laptops, calculators, books, and CDs in the Library. It also will help to verify your identity as a student here on campus.

All financial aid is released on the Student ID card after the fifth week of classes. If you need books for class you must be eligible for financial aid to access your book account which is set-up based on the status of your enrollment, i.e. full-time, part-time, or half-time. Your Student ID card is valid for five years, so please do not throw it away or lose it. The replacement cost is $20 per card per occurrence. 

A new Enrollment Status feature is now a requirement for all students who have a Student ID card. Part of this enrollment feature will determine if a new monthly fee of $3.95 will be charged to your account. This feature is asking for an estimated graduation date for all students and verification if you are a current student. 

Please note: If you currently attend STLCC and anticipate graduating, allow yourself time for emergencies such as needing to take a semester off or having to add additional semesters. You will not be charged this fee. If you are no longer attending STLCC and you have stopped or have graduated, you will be charged this fee. You can avoid this fee by having a zero balance when you leave the college. 

The use of your Student ID card is rather simple. If you need to make withdrawals from your account, only utilize the ATM machines located on campus near the Campus Life Office on the second floor and the Bookstore on the lower level of the Student Center. If you make withdrawals from a foreign ATM each transaction will cost you $2.50 plus the fee from the foreign bank ATM chosen. You can also make purchases by choosing credit, then swiping and signing for those purchases, however; if you use your PIN# you will be charged fifty cents per transaction. SAVE yourself some money! 

Remember! If you need assistance with your STLCC HigherOne Student ID card please visit the Campus Life Office located in the Student Center Building between the hours of 8am – 7pm, Monday – Thursday and 8am – 4:30pm on Fridays.
