What's a OneCard?

Fitchburg State Mr. Falcon's OneCardWhen you come to Fitchburg State as a new student or employee, you'll get a OneCard. This is your official Fitchburg State University identification card and you'll use it to access many services around campus—it's your library card, recreation center pass, meal card, door key, access to campus events and more. You can store funds on your card so you can pay for things around campus without carrying cash. OneCards are issued by the OneCard Office.

How Do I Get My OneCard?

New Students

If your picture was taken during a summer SOAR Orientation, your card will be given to you during Fall Orientation Check-In/Move-In.

If you didn't attend a summer SOAR orientation, your student ID picture must be taken prior to your arrival in the fall or spring semester. Please visit the OneCard Office at your earliest convenience to have a photo taken. You must bring one form of a photo ID (license, passport, etc.) with you to obtain your card.

New Faculty & Staff
