Southeast Tech 1Card

Southeast Tech 1CARD is the official identification and access card for students, faculty and staff at Southeast Tech. Your 1CARD can be used to check out books at the Southeast Tech Library, and it can be pre-loaded with funds for printing and purchases on campus.

Funds can be deposited online anytime or on campus at the Business Office with cash during regular office hours. 

Funds cannot be withdrawn as cash, but your balance will roll over each semester/year as long as you are a registered student or current faculty or staff member. All students will be provided with $20 for printing.
