SAN DIEGO, Oct 8, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- San Diego State University (SDSU)
students, faculty and staff are getting more than campus identification with
their SDSUcards this year. Now, the card that can pay for certain on-campus
services can be loaded quickly and easily via U.S. Bank Internet Banking, if the
cardholder is a U.S. Bank customer.
The enhancement complements the functions that were introduced earlier this year
that allow the card to be used to pay for purchases wherever Visa is accepted.
Customers no longer have to use traditional means during regular business hours
to deposit cash on to their card, such as at a funds transfer station (similar
to an ATM) or other designated locations on campus. Now they transfer money to
the card accounts (known as SDSUfunds) from their U.S. Bank accounts,
24-hours-a-day from any computer via a secure Internet connection at usbank.com.
The new capability is key for those late nights printing term papers in the
computer lab or a last minute load of laundry.
U.S. Bank won the SDSU Campusbank Card contract in November 2002. The SDSUcard
provides official identification and access to campus photocopy machines,
student laundry facilities, health services, the pharmacy and computer labs and
now, banking programs. U.S. Bank also offers Aztec Checking that carries the
SDSU name and logo for anyone (including alumni) who want to display SDSU pride
whenever and wherever they pull out their checkbooks.
SDSU is one of 19 colleges and universities that partner with U.S. Bank for a
campus card program. Others include Iowa State University, Xavier University and
the University of Louisville.
U.S. Bank and SDSU partnered with Diebold to enable Internet transfer
capabilities on the SDSUcard to ensure a seamless integration of this enhanced
functionality. The Diebold CS Gold software package is used to manage the SDSU
