Taking Care of Your Card

Do not fold or staple the card. Do not expose it to magnets or microwaves. Do not punch holes in it or otherwise damage it. Damaged or punctured cards must be turned in to Mountaineer Card Services, and you will be charged a $30 replacement fee. View the Mountaineer Card Fee structure to determine if you are eligible for a free card replacement or if you must pay for a replacement.

Departmental Copy and Print Cards

Information Technology Services advises WVU faculty and staff to use a separate departmental card for routine copying and printing needs instead of sharing Mountaineer Cards. Departmental cards are secure, convenient and in compliance with WVU's policies.
