Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Do I have to replace my card each year?

No, the new QuickCard does not have to be replaced each year. As long as you are a valid student, faculty or staff member, your card will be active for all the privileges that are assigned to your card. The expiration date on the face of the new ID card only deactivates the Discover ® Money Network ™ portion of the card.
