What is a campus card?
The Skidmore ID is your College identification card for the time that you are affiliated with the college. In addition to identification, the Card system manages card entry access to buildings, meal plan access, and declining balance money. In addition to on-campus locations, you can also use your declining balance (Student or Staff) plan at the linked off-campus locations.
Who is eligible for a card?
Any current Faculty/Staff member or Student is eligible to get a Skidmore Card. Any other inquiries should be directed to the card office.
What functions does the card control?
The Skidmore ID provides access to residential spaces across campus. This function is administered by our Residential Life group during the school year and our Summer and Special Programs group in the summer. It also provides meal access to our dining hall. Faculty, staff and students can also add declining balance dollars to their Skidmore ID to take advantage of our various convenience and pay-per-item dining facilities, the Skidmore Shop, laundry, vending, the post office, the library copiers, etc. That money can also be used in various Saratoga locations.
What is a SCIP card?
A SCIP (Skidmore College Internal Purchasing) card is basically a departmental charge card that allows departments at Skidmore to use the above listed declining balance locations and to charge them internally. This card leverages the campus card system and integrates with the PASS system.
Adding deposits to the card
Faculty, staff or students with a valid id number can log in here to manage their card, view their balances and add money using a credit card.
Parents can add money to their child’s account without a login here. They will need to know their child’s 7 digit Skidmore ID number in order to make a deposit.
Other (less IT driven) methods of adding money to a card are detailed here.
Card system software and integration points
Our card system is comprised of Cbord and Micros software.
The card system integrates with a number of other campus systems including our housing system, the Oracle applications, and the PASS system.
