Taking Care of Your 1CARD

Your Southeast Tech 1CARD is a contactless smart card with an integrated chip and antenna. Due to the internal components certain handling guidelines should be followed. Failure to follow these guidelines may compromise the performance of the embedded technology.

Take care of your 1CARD

  • Place your 1CARD in a protective holder
  • Do not bend, bite or twist the card
  • Do not place near metal object
  • Make sure you remove your 1CARD from your pants pocket before you wash them
  • Do not use your 1CARD as an ice scraper
  • Do not punch holes in your 1CARD as it will break the wires inside
  • Tapped cards will not be accepted
  • Do not let someone else use your 1CARD – it is for your use only
  • If you lose your card, deactivate it online or call the Business Office
  • If you find it, you can reactivate it before you get a new one re-printed
