OREM — A joint effort with Utah Community Credit Union will give faculty, staff and students at Utah Valley State College the option to choose an enhanced UV OneCard ID beginning this fall.

The new UV OneCard campus ID will include advanced chip technology to allow select door access, library services, bookstore purchases, discount purchases at dining services on campus, a UTA bus pass and more, in addition to an option to upgrade to Visa debit and ATM capability. UVSC will be the first college in the country to combine this many technologies into a campus ID card.

"We are very excited about the enhanced UV OneCard campus ID and to be partnering with Utah Community Credit Union," said Val Peterson, vice president for administration and legislative affairs. "Several financial institutions were considered as our UV OneCard banking partner, and we felt UCCU would be the best partner to help ensure the financial education and success of our students."

UCCU's partnership with UVSC will also provide money for scholarships, internships and sponsorships on campus.

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to obtain a OneCard before fall semester. Cards will be available in July.

Utah Community Credit Union operates 17 branches in the Utah County area, serves more than 96,000 members and is one of the largest financial institutions based in Utah County.
