The scholastic life can get hectic. Between classes, meetings, study sessions and trips to the library, you have to somehow find time to eat, run errands and attend to life's necessities. We offer the Convenience Card to make life a little easier. Your HSU student, faculty, or staff ID card can pull double duty as your C-Card.
All you have to do is make the initial deposit to activate your ID card to serve as a debit account. Your card can be used for purchases at any participating campus location. Deposits are easily made at most Dining locations (not the J), at the kiosk on the wall outside the AS Office in the South Lounge, by phone 826-5983 or 826-5510, at the Dining Services Cashier, by mail, or online. Read more about C-Card at c-card.humboldt.edu.
The C-Card can be used to purchase food, textbooks, clothing, event tickets, supplies, on campus vending and laundry and more without having to carry cash. Once you activate your C-Card account, all purchases made with the C-Card will be automatically deducted from your account balance. To check your current balance, simply ask at any participating location or visit your account online.
You can add value to your C-Card account at multiple locations across campus and on our web site. There is no fee to add value to add value at our on campus locations but there is a $2.00 transaction fee when you add value on our web site.

If the card is ever lost or stolen, report it to the Housing and Dining Cashier or online; the card will be immediately deactivated and the remaining account balance will be guaranteed.
