Purple Plu$ Card

A Purple Plu$ Card is the official University of Mount Union identification card. All faculty, staff, students and sponsored individuals are required to have their ID cards for identification, security, and access to university buildings and services. The card must always be carried while on campus. The card is valuable and should be treated like cash, a credit card, or a key. In addition to identification, the card provides access to restricted areas (i.e. residence halls, restricted labs, or classrooms, etc.), meal plans, library materials, cultural and athletic events, and may additionally allow for purchases to be made on campus if funds are made available through the GET app.
