Connection Card Maxx - Campus ID and U.S. Bank debit card all in one!
CWU and U.S. Bank are proud to offer the Connection Card Maxx, a combination card offering all the benefits of our regular connection card and a VISA debit card/checking account. U.S. Bank Maxx cardholders that need smartcard access for doors will be issued a separate keycard.  Your Maxx card will still function like a Connection Card in all aspects except to open non-swipe door readers.  If you have a Maxx card, and need smartcard access, please come to the Connection Card office, and we will issue you a keycard free of charge.
