You can use your Viking Card like a debit-card for discretionary purchases at the Business Office, the bookstore, the Viking I restaurant, the Viking Grounds (a Starbuck's Coffee shop in the VCSU Student Center), and more.
Stop by the Student Center information desk to get your picture taken. You'll need to have been entered into CampusConnection (our campus administrative system) in order to get your picture taken. Cards are issued at the Student Center Information Desk and they will be available when you arrive on campus immediately prior to the start of fall semester. You'll need to present a government issued photo ID when you pick up your Viking Card. The card can be used immediately.
