The Skidmore Card is much more than a traditional I.D. Not only does it identify you as a member of the Skidmore community, it also allows you access to the dining halls and other campus facilities; operates on the basis of a declining balance account for various purchases on and off campus; and holds all the information concerning your meal plan.

All funds deposited to declining balance accounts must remain on your account until graduation, withdrawal or separation from Skidmore College. At that time, a written refund request must be submitted to the Skidmore Campus Card Office.

If you are a first-year student and plan to visit the campus this summer, you may obtain your Skidmore Card at that time. This will save you valuable time during orientation.

The Card and Purchases

You may use it at the Skidmore Shop to buy books, supplies, or any of the other items the shop carries. It may also be used at the Spa, the Burgess Café, the Skidmore Post Office, and Health Services, as well as in vending machines, laundry machines, and library copiers. You may also use your card at various locations off campus. To view a list of these off-campus merchants that accept the card, please CLICK HERE. To make it easier to identify locations that accept the Card, just look for the Skidmore Card logo.
