As part of UCF’s move to their new student banking partner, Fairwinds Credit Union, students, faculty and staff will be required to get new student ID cards free of charge.

UCF’s Card Services is asking everyone to bring in their current cards for a replacement by the end of January.


UCF recently severed banking ties with Suntrust bank and signed a deal with Fairwinds as their new partner. The company is expected to open a new campus branch in January, and the new UCF ID cards will be compatible for those in the UCF community with Fairwinds bank and credit union accounts.

Card services will be sending out an email to all students, staff and faculty advising them of the changes.
