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 general cardholder form must also be completed and returned with your photograph along with a copy of your driver’s license.

Student’s with an online degree do not automatically pay a fee for Colonel Card, therefore we will add a $15 fee to their Banner account if a Colonel Card is needed.
