5. Responsibilities

The Cougar Card is a multipurpose identification card with verification capabilities. The Cougar Card provides access to student residence halls, academic buildings, meal plans, library services, Cougar Cash and athletic facilities. Cougar Cards are required for all students and highly recommended for faculty and staff and must be presented for all card transactions. After receiving an appropriate authorization establishing a relationship with Clinton Community College students, faculty and staff may obtain their identification card from the Office located in the Moore Building in room 112M.

6. Procedure

Cougar Cards are provided for appropriate identification to use and access buildings and services. The card is non-transferrable and is valid as long as the holder continues her/his specific affiliation with the College. A Cougar Card is to be used only by the person to whom it is issued. Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to the FSA Office by calling 518-562-4372 or 518-562-4371. Anyone finding Cougar Cards should immediately send them to the Office located in the Moore Building in room 112M. The Cougar Card may be presented as collateral for official college business ONLY. College offices accepting Cougar Card as collateral must have a lockbox to secure cards and notify cardholder within twenty-four hours if Cougar Card has not been picked-up. After forty-eight hours the Cougar Card must be delivered to FSA. The Cougar Card must be secured at all times and never be left unattended or unsecured in a lockbox.

7. Card Replacement

Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to the FSA Office by calling 518-562-4372 or 518-562-4371 or coming to the FSA Office in the Moore Building in room 112M during regular office hours of Monday through Friday 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM. Your card will be suspended and no one will be able to use it. If you find your ID card you must come into the FSA Office to reactivate it. For security reasons we cannot reactivate IDs over the phone or via e-mail. Once a new card is issued your old card cannot be reactivated or used. The fee to replace a damaged card is $5.00 (you must present the damaged card to receive this discount fee). The fee to replace a lost or stolen card is $15.00.
