Mcard will not be required for returning students
y Steve Seepersaud
aily Staff Reporter
By September, all University stu-
ent identification cards will be printed
with the name Mcard. But while first-
year newcomers are required to hold the
new "smart" card, the new technology
will not be mandatory for returning stu-
Anyone obtaining a new or replace-
ent card this fall will automatically re-
ceive an Mcard. The smart card will have
a chip capable of storing a cash value,
like Entree Plus, and a magnetic stripe
linked to a First of America checking ac-
However, it will not be mandatory to
have an Mcard with a bank account, said
Larry Durst, manager of the Entr6e Office.
"We hope many students will want to
have one. It's up to the student. It abso-
lutely (remains optional)," he said.
A .nrann st . -r -r-tn to- .
place Entree Plus. Judy Ash, the coordina-
torofBank Card Services, said that a court
ruled it illegal for Eastem Michigan Uni-
versity to operate a system similar to
Entrde Plus, in which a university ex-
tended credit to students.
"We all wish Entree Plus didn't have
to go away," Ash said. "Students liked go-
ing to the Entre Office, signing a form,
and getting $100."
Ted Kim, an LSA senior, said he has
been pleased with the Entree Plus system.
"I liked most that it got charged to my
parents and not me," he said.
In March, more than 500 students
took part in a pilot study with the Mcard.
Ash said that students in focus group dis-
cussions said that overall, they were sat-
isfied with the new card. "(Students)
liked the fact they didn't have to carry
cash. It was convenient not to have to
carry more than one card," she said.

but might get one. "I don't see how I
couldn't get interested in it if they're phas-
ing out Entr6e Plus. I used it most of the
time at the Union. (With Mcard), I could
use it at McDonald's or Burger King," he
Kristina Rivera, a senior in the School
of Education, said she was hesitant about
getting an Mcard. "I am always worried
about the credit card factor -it alwaysbe-
ing there, using it to buy food, and losing
track," she said.
Durst sid that students who want the
Mcard can bring their old card in and ex-
change it at no cost. Students who re-
ceived new cards last fall have their pic-
ture and signature stored in a computer
file. He said that it could be possible for
students to call requesting an Mcard and
have the photo and signature placed on a
Kim said he had to get a new identifi-
cation card last fall but said it was not a
hassle. "I did have to go to the (Student
Activities Building) butI can't say that it
was a pain."
Rivera said she agreed that the iden-
tification card change last year was easy.
"It wasn't that big of a deal."
Durst said that he was trying to
implement the plan with very little in-
convenience. "My job is to generate
cards. If (the new card) is something ev-
eryone wants, I'll be replacing 20,000
cards again. We hope we're moving in
the rifht direction," he said.
Ash said that Mcard will have some
new features this fall. Students will be
able to electronically transfer funds
from their BankStripe to their cash chip,
and they can have financial aid and Uni-
versity paychecks deposited directly to
their Mcard account. Parents could
transfer money from any bank to a
student's Mcard bank stripe.
Presently, the University is looking to
build a large base of off-campus mere
chants to paticipate in the program. "We
want to have 250 merchants. In order to
provide students with access to off-cam-
pus, we had to go with a debit card," Ash
She also said that the University
wanted to include stores at the Briarwood
Mall in addition to merchants near cam-
"We've made phone calls to other
stores. There'sbeen alot of interest in this,"
