Owl Cards to be updated

Computer Services announced today in an email that students will be seeing new Owl Cards this summer and fall.

The announcement said that Computer Services and the Diamond Dollars Office are in the process of redesigning the student identification card.

A notable update will be the addition of expiration dates on the Owl Card which will allow the identification cards to count as voter identification cards in accordance with new voter identification legislation in Pennsylvania.  The Temple College Democrats have been pushing to add expiration dates to the Owl Cards and Temple Student Government recently passed a resolution in support of the expiration dates.

In addition to the expiration dates, the card will have the ability to be used as a PNC ATM card.

The date of completion and distribution methods for the new cards has yet to be announced.
