Georgia Southern University Becomes a Mobile-First Institution

Georgia Southern University is now a “mobile-first” institution with the introduction of its new campus identification card, the Eagle Card Mobile ID. Georgia Southern is committed to making student life as convenient as possible, and the Mobile ID is a key component of that mission. Students will be able to use this contactless solution in a variety of ways on campus, improving their accessibility and customer experience.

Starting this summer, all new students attending orientation will be the first wave of students to start with a mobile-only identification card. Physical cards will still be available in certain circumstances and for faculty/staff, but the University is encouraging students to use the Mobile ID for all campus transactions.

To get started, students need to ensure they have a photo on file, either submitted through the Transact portal or a picture captured in the Eagle Card Center office. Then, they can download the Transact eAccounts app and activate their Eagle Card Mobile ID via this link . The app is available for both iOS and Android devices and allows students to manage their Eagle Card account, view balances and make transactions on the go. Once the ID is ready in the app, they need to click the button in the app to add it to their Apple Wallet, Apple Watch, Google Wallet or Samsung Wallet.

“Overall, the Eagle Card Mobile ID is an exciting development for Georgia Southern University and its students,” said Director of Eagle Card Services Richard Wynn, “The Eagle Card Mobile ID is more than just a digital version of the physical ID card. It offers students a range of features and benefits that make it an essential tool for campus life.” 

For example, students can use their Mobile ID to access their residence hall, check out books from the library and purchase meals at campus dining locations. The Mobile ID also serves as a secure form of identification, with biometric authentication and encryption technology to protect students’ personal information.

The move to a mobile-first campus ID system is a significant step forward for Georgia Southern University. It reflects the changing needs and expectations of today’s students, who are increasingly reliant on their smartphones for communication, information, and entertainment. With the Eagle Card Mobile ID, students have everything they need right at their fingertips, making campus life more convenient, efficient and enjoyable.

By embracing a mobile-first approach to campus life, Georgia Southern is demonstrating its commitment to providing a modern, accessible and student-centered education. As more and more students adopt the Eagle Card Mobile ID, it is likely to become an indispensable tool for navigating campus life and achieving academic success.

Georgia Southern University Now Offers Their Eagle Card on iPhone, Apple Watch, and Android Phones

With Eagle Card Mobile ID, students can get around campus with just a tap of their device at campus readers

SAVANNAH, GA, Oct. 6, 2022 鈥 Georgia Southern University students can now add their Eagle Card to Apple Wallet or Google Pay and use their iPhones, Apple Watches, or Android phones to conveniently, safely, and securely access campus buildings, purchase meals, and more.

With mobile IDs, students can complete any action that would have previously required a physical ID card 鈥 both on and off campus 鈥 with just their iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android phone.  Students simply place their devices near a reader to enter dorms, libraries, and fitness centers, buy lunch, make purchases at campus stores, and more. 

The move from physical cards to a contactless Eagle Card on iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android phones allows for transactions that are safe, convenient, and highly secure; and helps students avoid touching the readers or handing their ID cards to someone else. Georgia Southern can also issue Eagle Cards remotely without the need to see students in-person or print and mail physical cards, creating a safer, more cost-effective, and more environmentally friendly process.

鈥淚鈥檓 excited about the enhanced experience the mobile credential will bring to our students,鈥 said Ron Stalnaker, Vice President of Business and Finance at Georgia Southern University, 鈥淚 know that the convenience of being able to use the Eagle Card on their smartphones will be a great benefit to our students and we鈥檙e very happy to be able to offer this service.鈥

No more digging it out of my wallet to swipe to open a door when my hands are full. Makes trips to The Galley super easy as well,鈥 said Georgia Southern Armstrong Campus student Carson Myrick

Eagle Card on iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android phones is also protected by two-factor authentication to ensure only the student can access their account, even if someone else knows their password. 

Georgia Southern University is home to more than 27,000 students learning throughout approximately 138 different degree programs. Our Armstrong Campus has over 5,100 students who live in residence halls or frequent campus as commuters. They can all take advantage of the Eagle Card Mobile ID and enjoy a contactless method of using daily products and services.
