CWUP 2-10-190 Connection Cards

(1) Use - The connection card provides photo identification for all CWU students, faculty, and staff. A department connection card may only be issued to a department for department use. For information on obtaining a department connection card, see CWUR 3-50-520.

(2) Unauthorized use - Using a connection card that does not bear your identity is strictly prohibited. Unauthorized use also includes allowing someone to use your card while you are not present. The connection card is property of CWU and must be presented to university officials upon request. In accordance with the student conduct code section 106-120-027 proscribed conduct, item #7: forgery, alteration, or misuse of the identification card warrants disciplinary action or sanction. Confiscation, $100.00 fine, and/or disciplinary action (see WAC 106-120-028) may result from university sanctions.

Cards which are confiscated for unauthorized use will be destroyed and not returned or replaced. Central Washington University is not responsible for dining dollars or money spent on a lost or stolen card. All lost and stolen cards should be reported to the connection card office immediately. Cards reported stolen will be inactivated by the connection card office. 

The department connection card is not authorized for personal use, and any use of the card for personal reasons is in violation of CWU Policy 2-40-210 State Property.

(3) Card fees - All students, faculty, and staff are eligible for one free connection card. The connection card office will charge a patron card replacement fee to the card owner for any lost/damaged cards, see CWU Procedure 3-50-525.
