Distance learning students that to do not come onto the campus during office hours can have a Colonel Card mailed to them by following the photo and mailing address email submission guide below:

A cardholder form must also be completed and submitted with your photograph along with a copy of your state or government issued ID and a headshot.

Students with an online degree do not automatically pay a fee for their first Colonel Card, therefore we will add a $15 fee to their Banner account if a Colonel Card is issued. It must be paid by the end of the semester.
