The WICKit card is Hartwick College’s ID card and is your personal identification while on/off campus.
A tap or swipe of the Hartwick student WICKit card allows access to the following:
- Residence hall door plan (a student must tap or swipe at the outer door of their residence hall to gain access)
- Meal plan (students tap as they enter the Commons Dining Hall to access their meal plan)
- Meal plan dollars
- WICKit Dollars for on- or off-campus purchases
- UniPrint free printing balance
- Local merchants accepting WICKit cards
WICKit Dollars are not tied to your College student account. WICKit is a declining balance and can be used in campus food establishments, the Bookstore, library, campus vending machines, and campus laundry. In addition, a number of off-campus merchants have agreed to honor the card for your off-campus purchases. Funds deposited to WICKit will be carried over from one semester to the next. At graduation or separation from the College, WICKit balances $10 or more will be applied to your student account. WICKit funds under $10 will be forfeited.

Q: I lost my WICKit card. What should I do?
A: Remember that your WICKit card is your personal identification card and much more. Like a debit card, if you lose your WICKit card and someone finds it, they could use your funds, so it is important to deactivate your lost card as soon as possible. You can deactivate your WICKit card by logging into the WICKit eAccounts site. You can access the site from http://www.hartwick.edu/eAccounts or from the Hartwick menu in Desire2Learn. You should also report lost or stolen cards to Campus Safety by calling 607-431-4111.

Q: Can I punch a hole in my new WICKit card?
A; Because of the sensitivity of the chip and magnetic strip on your card, we recommend that you NOT punch any holes in your WICKit card. We recommend a plastic card sleeve with a lanyard to hold your card. NOTE: If your card should fail for any reason, and you have punched a hole in your card, you will automatically be charged for a replacement card.
Q: Do I need to replace my WICKit card every year?
A: No, WICKit cards are durable and have a protective laminate on them, so they should last a long time. Here are some simple tips to extend the life of your WICKit card:
- Keep your card away from items that can generate a magnetic field (computers, refrigerators, microwaves, stereo speakers).
- Keep the card away from excessive heat.
- Do not put the card through the washing machine or dryer.
- Do not use the card as a windshield scraper or a tool.
Q: How can I tell what my current WICKit balance is?
A: There are 3 ways to check your balance:
- Every time you use your card to purchase something, your balance as of that transaction is displayed on the cash register pole display or on the LCD display on vending readers and on the washer/dryer controller readers.
- You can ask any manned location which accepts the WICKit card to tell you your balance.
- Check your balance at WICKit eAccounts. You can access the site from http://www.hartwick.edu/eAccounts or from the Hartwick menu in Desire2Learn.
Q: How much money should I add to my WICKit card in order to cover me for the year?
A: There is no limit to how much you can add, but most students start with about $100 until they see how much they use the card. Keep in mind that the WICKit card can be used at participating off-campus merchants in the Oneonta area.
Q: How do I use my WICKit $ off campus?
A: Participating merchants will have a WICKit Accepted Here sign in their business window. Each participating merchant is given a card reader, so when you make a purchase, you will need your WICKit card for the merchant to swipe. The card reader then checks the campus system to be sure that you have enough funds in your WICKit account to pay for your purchase. Note: Participating merchants are prohibited from charging any additional fees or surcharges for accepting the WICKit card. Merchants are also prohibited from charging alcohol or tobacco products to the WICKit card.
Q: Having problems with your WICKit card or wish to report problems with the WICKit system?
A: Please call the Technology Resource Center at 607-431-4357, or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
