LAZER Cards

What is a LAZER Card?

Students, Faculty, Administrators and Staff all receive a LazerCard, the official ID card of Onondaga Community College. The card features a convenient, pre-paid debit account option for making purchases all across campus.

LazerCardS are issued at the LAZER Card Office at Student Central in the Gordon Student Center, and can be used at the following on-campus locations: 

  • The dining hall, Mawhinney dining location, and coffee bar areas
  • Laundry facilities in the residence halls
  • Vending machines on campus
  • Bookstore

Adding funds to your card

You can add funds to your card in one of two ways:

There is a $2.50 minimum deposit amount when you download the GET app and all funds applied to the card are non-refundable and non-transferable. Funds are valid only for the current academic year through the last day of the Spring semester, unless the student is enrolled for summer sessions. If the student is enrolled for one or more summer sessions, his/her funds will expire on August 31st. LAZER Card funds do not carry over into the next academic year. No cash withdrawals can be made from your LAZER Card account.

1. By filling out a form at Student Central.

The form will ask you what amount you would like to deposit, the method of payment, and the plan where you would like to deposit funds.

There are three plans: Student Dining, Student Other (which covers Vending/Laundry/OffCampus Vendors) and the Student Print Quota Option. The Dining Option includes purchases made in the Gordon Café, Whitney Café, Coulter Café, Mawhinney Café and the Starbucks in Gordon.

Funds can be applied using cash, check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard®, Visa® or Discover®).

2. By logging into Get Funds

Simply log in and select DEPOSIT TO ACCOUNT from the tool bar. Determine an amount from the pulldown and select which SV&C plan you wish to deposit to and select "Submit”. Follow the easy form and you’re done. Note: You may use the Student Other option to apply funds to your print quota.

There is a $2.50 minimum deposit amount when you download the GET app and all funds applied to the card are non-refundable and non-transferable. Funds are valid only for the current academic year through the last day of the Spring semester, unless the student is enrolled for summer sessions. If the student is enrolled for one or more summer sessions, his/her funds will expire on August 31st. LAZER Card funds do not carry over into the next academic year. No cash withdrawals can be made from your LAZER Card account.

You can also invite others to add money to your LAZER Card through the Get Funds app.  Select INVITE TO DEPOSIT from the toolbar, a link is produced for you to share or send with someone to make a secure deposit directly into your LAZER Card account using a credit card (MasterCard®, Visa® or Discover®).

 

What do I do if I lose my LAZER Card?

If you lose your LAZER Card, you need to report it in one of two ways:  

  1. Call Campus Safety & Law Enforcement at 315-498-2478. 
  2. Log into your LazerCard Account using your OCC credentials. Once you are logged into the system select Report Lost Card from the left tool bar. You’ll be asked “Do you want to report your card as lost?” Select Yes. If you find your card you can log back and report your card found. The only way to protect your funds on the card and the access to your residence hall building is to report the card lost as soon as possible. To obtain a new card, a $15 fee would need to be paid at the front counter in Student Central and a receipt of this payment presented to the LazerCard Office for reissuing. Your account will remain the same, and any existing funds that were on the card when it was inactivated will remain.

After the card is reported lost it will be deactivated.
