Security and Validation

The Miner Gold Card is more than just your ID card. It provides security and validation for many of the services you enjoy on campus.

The Miner Gold card automatically activates on the first day of class and is deactivated on the last day of class. Once activated, the card provides you with access to certain buildings and facilities on campus. Services provided by the Library, the Student Health Center, and the Recreational and Fitness Center check for activation via a validation check. The Ticket Center and sports arenas also use validation to deduct sporting event tickets from active students and validate enrollment.

If you completely withdraw from the university your Miner Gold card is automatically deactivated.
