A division of Heartland Payment Systems (HPY) has signed up 15 new colleges and universities to use its card designed for students and campus life.
The merchant processor based in Princeton, N.J., said Monday that the schools that will now use the Campus OneCard System have a combined enrollment of more than 106,000 students and are located in New York, Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Maryland and Georgia. The company has similar agreements with about 165 other colleges and universities.
The Campus OneCard System provides students with a contactless or magnetic stripe campus ID card, which can serve as a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.-insured prepaid card. The OneCard can also be used for purposes related to security, housing access, vending and laundry machines and library management.
The OneCard also has four Android and Apple iOS mobile applications that allow cardholders to use mobile devices for on-campus purchases and to access account information.
