What is the ConnectCard?
The ConnectCard is a vital part of life at Davidson County Community College. This one card serves as an identification badge for students, faculty, and staff, permits access to facilities and special events, and can be used to purchase goods and services at the College. The following information provides an overview of the features available with your ConnectCard in addition to other important information.
Access to Facilities
Students, faculty, and staff may use their ConnectCard to access the campus fitness center, gymnasium, and other recreational facilities. Administrative and academic buildings can be accessed as well as computer labs.
The Flexible Spending Account (“FLEX”) is an optional pre-paid account available to students, employees, faculty, and staff. In addition to purchasing food items from campus dining facilities and stores FLEX can be used to pay for items such as textbooks, school and office supplies, and more. The FLEX account greatly reduces the need to carry cash on campus.
Payment for Goods & Services
- Dining Services — campus restaurant
- College Stores — textbooks & trade books, school & office supplies, computers & software, apparel & gifts
When using your flex funds as payment for campus dining services, you will receive a 10% discount on your purchase.
Additional funds may be added to the Flex account via cash, check, money order, or credit card. You may add funds to your account by contacting the ConnectCard Office, located upstairs in the J. Bryan Brooks Student Center. The ConnectCard Office accepts cash, check, money order, or credit card. There is a $20 minimum deposit required when utilizing the ConnectCard Office to add funds to your account. Full-time Davidson County Community College faculty and staff may also request that a specific amount be automatically deducted from their paycheck each month and deposited into their Flexible Spending Account.
The ConnectCard system was developed with the purpose of providing you with the account security you need on campus. Each cardholder must help maintain the integrity of the system by immediately reporting lost or stolen cards and notifying Campus Security or the ConnectCard Office if they witness the propping of doors, abuse of card readers, or unauthorized use of a person’s ConnectCard.
Lost ConnectCards must be reported IMMEDIATELY to the ConnectCard Office at 336-249-8186, ext. 6341. The office is open from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Your card can be inactivated instantly, blocking the unauthorized use of your accounts or access features.
Replacement cards can be issued from the ConnectCard Office at any time. A new card can be produced in minutes and will have the same account and access features as your original card. A lost card does not mean lost money, if it is reported promptly. There is a $10 fee to replace a lost ConnectCard.
Each cardholder who has a flexible spending account may request a detailed statement showing the beginning and ending account balance and an itemized list of all transactions per period from the ConnectCard Office.
If you believe that your account was improperly debited, present a copy of your sales receipt or account statement to the merchant that processed the transaction or the ConnectCard Office.
