Bakersfield College students will have a new style of official identification cards this month that will also work as an optional prepaid MasterCard® card issued by U.S. Bank. The new OneCard will provide all current BC students with the convenience of a single card to access various campus services, receive financial aid refunds, pay for copy/print services on campus, access materials from local and state library resources, and make purchases wherever debit MasterCard cards are accepted.
“The OneCard is a reflection of how Bakersfield College puts students first,” said Primavera Arvizu, director of financial aid for BC. “This card not only streamlines student services, it reduces the cost and staff time spent on issuing and mailing paper refund checks.”
Students electing to activate a prepaid MasterCard account with their OneCard pay no enrollment or monthly fees. Funds can be added to the account from one or multiple sources, such as a parent, employer or financial aid office, at no cost. Cardholders can also withdraw funds from the account for free at any U.S. Bank or MoneyPass-branded ATM located on campus or nationwide. Online and mobile tools are available for cardholders to stay easily informed and in control of their finances.
