​​student holding campus ID

The CentralCard is the university photo identification card used for many services at the university. It is used to enter the residential restaurants to eat meals, admission to athletic events or as identification when entering the Student Activity Center or residence hall fitness centers.

You will receive your CentralCard card during your orientation session. Your first card is free, however, there is a $25 replacement fee if the card is lost or stolen. If an ID card is damaged, there is a $10 replacement fee, providing the damage card is turned in at the same time. A $25 misuse fee is charged if someone is caught using another student’s ID. The ID card is to be used only by the student whose name and photo appears on the card. 

Central Michigan University and Independent Bank are partners bringing you services linked to your CentralCard. You have the option of linking your CentralCard to an Independent Bank checking account so you can use your card as a Point of Sale card to make purchases and your ATM card to access your account at any Independent Bank, NYCE, Plus Network ATM or vendor. For your added convenience, there is an Independent Bank branch on the main floor of the Bovee University Center.

FLEX Dollars, which are a part of your meal plan, are loaded on your CentralCard for purchases at all dining locations on campus. Visi​t www.cmucampusdining.com to add more FLEX Dollars to your meal plan any time.
