We have an automatic privilege assignment/removal process to enable or disable the ID card. If the card has the banking option, disabling the card would not deactivate the banking feature of the card.

The cardholder will be asked several token questions to confirm account transaction authority. The College provides replacement service of ID cards during operational hours at one of the two ID Card Locations (MSC Bookstore in Tishomingo, Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p. m. or Murray on Main in Ardmore, Monday – Friday 10:00 a. m. – 5:00 p. m.)
