What is the CarolinaCard?

The CarolinaCard is your official USC Aiken ID card, plus a flexible-spending, declining balance card.  Each time you make a purchase, the amount of the purchase is deducted from your account balance. It can be used at the Pacer Shoppe, at any campus dining facility, vending machines, and for PacerPrint.

All students must have a University of South Carolina Aiken ID card. The CarolinaCard will allow use of University facilities and services and is designed to be checked by computer for validity. This is a permanent card and is valid as long as a student is officially registered. The card is the property of the University of South Carolina Aiken and is intended solely for its use. The first student ID card is issued free of charge. Should the card be lost, stolen, or confiscated, or otherwise terminated, a replacement charge of $25 will automatically be assessed upon issuance of a new card. If the ID card has a meal plan, the student must immediately contact Dining Services. ID cards are made in the University Police Office, Pacer Downs Community Building during regular office hours.
