Important information about your Shocker Card

  • The Shocker Card is property of Wichita State University. It must be carried at all times and presented to University officials upon request.

  • The Shocker Card is non-transferable. Unauthorized use warrants confiscation and/or disciplinary action.

  • Your Shocker Card doesn't expire. Cards are not reissued each semester or year. Keep your Shocker Card even if you leave the University. It will be valid if you return to WSU in the future.

  • ALL student privileges are based on your university account or enrollment status. Just having a Shocker Card does NOT entitle you to university privileges.

  • Your first Shocker Card is issued to you FREE. There is a replacement fee for any lost, thrown away or mutilated card. Faculty and Staff are not exempt from this charge.

  • Once a Shocker Card has been replaced, an old card cannot be reactivated. If you lose your Shocker Card and have an old Shocker Card, bring the old card in to the Shocker Card Center and we will replace the card at no cost.

  • All Shocker Card holders are entitled to carry ONE CARD only. Faculty and staff who are also taking classes will not receive a second “student” Shocker Card.

  • DO NOT punch holes, add stickers, cut, scratch or otherwise deface or mutilate your Shocker Card. Such damage may render your card invalid and may also cause damage to equipment. You will be charged for a replacement card.

  • Shocker Dollars and PaperCut funds are two separate accounts. PaperCut funds cannot be used as Shocker Dollars or meal plan money. Shocker Dollars cannot be used to print/copy.
