What is the C-Card?
The HSU Convenience Card is tied to your HSU student, faculty, or staff ID card. You may activate your ID card to serve as a debit account by making an initial deposit to the card. Your card may then be used for purchases at any participating campus location.

Using the C-Card is Easy
The C-Card can be used to purchase food, textbooks, clothing, event tickets, supplies, and more without having to carry cash. Once you activate your C-Card account, all purchases made with the C-Card will be automatically deducted from your account balance. To check your current balance, simply ask at any participating location or click here.
