Card Care & Replacement of Lost Card

It is important to keep your card with you at all times and protect your card from damage as much as possible.  In the event that your card is lost or damaged, please contact the card office ASAP or from your computer and go to our ONLINE CARD OFFICE and freeze your cash account to suspend your ColbyCard so it may no longer be used to access your account (you can freeze your card via the smartphone app as well).  If you find your card return to the online card office or computer, smartphone to re-activate your ColbyCard.   Please note that your ColbyCard account will not expire at the end of the academic year and you should keep your card in a safe place while you are away from campus.  You will need your card when you return.
