RaiderCard Machine


Your RaiderCard — you know, that blue card you got at orientation with your student I.D. number on it — it's the official GRCC student ID and your on campus debit card. Use it and you'll access free and money saving resources on and off campus.

  • Parking

    Use your RaiderCard to park in a college ramp or lot for $3.50 per exit. Otherwise, cash rates are $2 per half-hour, or $12 per day.

  • Printing

    Swipe your RaiderCard at a lab, Library, Student Life or the Enrollment Center printer and pay only 10 cents per page for black and white printing, and fifty cents per page for color.

  • Academic Support

    Check in with your RaiderCard to access tutoring and computer labs across campus.


How to Get a RaiderCard

Bring a valid picture ID and your student number to Student Life, the Tassell or Thompson MTEC to receive your RaiderCard. Your first RaiderCard is FREE! Replacement cards will cost you $10 each.

Debit Card

Budget your spending money by depositing financial aid or other funds into your RaiderCard account. Make sure you can always get what you need — and keep track of how much money you have left to spend throughout the semester. With the RaiderCard, there are no credit card charges or interest.

  • Where to eat

There are many on campus dining options and they all take your RaiderCard.  You can also pay with your RaiderCard in either of the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education lab kitchens — Art & Bev's Bistro and The Heritage Restaurant.

Do you work out? You do now — with your RaiderCard you get free access to all the amenities at the Fieldhouse.

Check out books and access other resources in the library.
