What is the OneCard?

The Citadel's OneCard is the school's new multipurpose campus I.D. card that functions mainly as a campus debit card. It replaces all previous versions of Citadel I.D. cards. It is your official identification while you are at The Citadel. Falsifying, altering, or misusing your own or anyone else's OneCard in any way is strictly prohibited and illegal. It becomes void upon graduation, interruption of enrollment, or termination of employment.


There are two tracks on the One Card.

  • One is your 'Restricted' Account. Formerly known as the QM or Quartermaster Account, your Restricted Account is automatically loaded as a release from tuition. Your Restricted Account can be used to purchase books, school supplies, your original issue from the Cadet Store, uniform issue and haircuts. Once you have spent the Restricted Account for that semester, you will need to use the 'open' account on your One Card.
  • The 'Open' Account on the One Card can be loaded with additional funds for use at campus facilities. The Open Account is used mainly to purchase food, drinks, and other items that cannot be purchased on the Restricted Account. You can send a check to the 'One Card Office' or go online via CampusCenter and that amount will be loaded on your 'Open' Account.
