SAN DIEGO, Oct 8, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- In BW5749 issued Oct. 8, 2003: Second
graph, first sentence should read: The enhancement complements the functions
introduced last year that allow card holders to withdraw cash at an ATM or make
purchases at merchants that accept PIN-debits.
The corrected release reads:
U.S. BANK AND SDSU MAKE CAMPUS CARD EASIER TO LOAD
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 introduced last year that allow card
holders to withdraw cash at an ATM or make purchases at merchants that accept
PIN-debits. 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
Campus Card program. Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE:DBD) is a global leader in
