What is the S-CARD?

The S-Card is a multifunctional smart card where the ID functionality (student ID card/ID card) and financial functionality (cash, electronic money, check/credit, postpay transportation card) have been combined into a single card. It functions as ID card on our campus and you can enter campus facilities that are restricted only to its members (libraries, computer labs, etc.) by tapping it at the entry. So, you should apply for it as soon as possible.

At some campus cafeterias, you can receive a 1,000 KRW discount for each meal when you suggest your S-Card. Often, students register their credit/debit card at the reception of cafeteria to top up the discount function and simply tap the debit card from the next time they purchase each meal.
