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

Using Your LAZERCARD Off Campus

You can now use your LAZER CARD for purchases off campus at participating businesses.


What is the LAZERCARD?

The LAZER CARD is the official identification card of Onondaga Community College as well as the only way to access the residence halls if you reside there. The Lazer Card also features a convenient, pre-paid debit account option for making purchases on campus. You can also complete many transactions online using the Get Funds portal.

Where is the LAZERCARD issued?

LAZER CARDS are issued at the LAZER CARD office at Student Central in the Gordon Student Center.

What do I do if I lose my LAZERCARD?

Please Note: You are responsible for reporting a lost card.

A lost card can be reported in one of 2 ways:

If you lose your LAZER CARD call Campus Security at 498-2478, or if during hours of operation the Lazer Card office at 498-2270 immediately. After the card is reported lost it will be deactivated.


You can report your card lost by logging 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 $28 fee would need to be paid at the front counter in Student Central and a receipt of this payment presented to the Lazer Card Office for reissuing. Your account will remain the same, and any existing funds that were on the card when it was inactivated will remain.

Where can the debit function of the LAZERCARD be used?

You can utilize the debit function of the LAZER CARD at the following locations around campus:

Where can I apply funds to my LAZERCARD?

Deposits can be made the following ways:

  • You can apply funds to your LAZER CARD at Student Central. There, you will be asked to complete a deposit form indicating the amount you would like to deposit, the method of payment and the plan where you would like to deposit funds. There are three options active at this time: The Dining Option, the Vending / Laundry/Off-Campus Option and the Student Print Quota Option. The Dining Option includes purchases made in the Dining Hall, Whitney Dunkin Donuts and C3 Convenience Store in Mawhinney Hall. Funds can be applied using cash, check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard®, Visa® or Discover®).

There is a $10 minimum deposit amount 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.

Can I invite others to deposit into my account?

Yes you can. If you log into Get Funds and 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®).
