The University of North Georgia's new identification cards, also called the Nighthawk Card, will be combining with the school's refund system to give students a single card that can be used in more places.
Starting in Fall 2013, UNG will be moving to Blackboard Pay (BbPay) to issue student refunds, allowing students to get their money faster. Powered by the Discover network, students will be able to use the new card in more places on and off campus where Discover is accepted, including Allpoint Network ATMs; account checks can be cashed for free at Wal-Mart locations.
The BbPay card is a debit card, not a credit card, and is accessible and secure. The card has no minimum balance or monthly service fee and funds can be loaded by the university, employer, cardholder or cardholder's parents. All funds are FDIC insured.
UNG Card Offices on all campuses will start issuing new student ID cards to new and returning UNG students on June 3.
Students who don’t want to use the card can elect to have it automatically deposited to the bank account of the student's choosing.
The Business Offices/Card Offices on all campuses will be holding information tables from 9 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. on the following dates and locations:
- April 22: Dahlonega campus on second floor of Hoag Student Center
- April 23: Gainesville campus in the Student Center near the dining facility
- April 24: Oconee campus outside the Student Center (inside Student Center if rain)
- April 25: Cumming campus in the Atrium
