Tips on taking care of the MICARD
Placing your MICARD on key chains may cause the reader stripe to become damaged. Ideally, the card should be kept on a lanyard that can go around your neck so that you can be easily identified as a current MICA student when accessing campus buildings.
- Do not bend, fold, or expose your card to excessive hot or cold temperatures, washing, or damaging elements.
- Do not pass your card through other systems (ex. Automated bank tellers), as decoding may occur.
- Do not leave your card on or near a TV, stereo, cell phone, microwave oven, or other electromagnetic equipment. Some pocketbooks contain magnetic tab locks.
- Do not punch holes in your card. This may make it unstable in any reader.
