Q. How do student access badges work at Emerald Campus?

  • All students enrolled in classes at Emerald Campus will be issued an access badge shortly after the add/drop date for use during the current semester/school year. The access badge allows entry into the building as well as entrance through the turnstiles, a timestamp security measure unique to EC.
  • The access badge allows entry only through the main front doors. There is a badge reader on the interior doors where students will swipe their badge to unlock the doors to enter the building.
  • In order to access the teaching and learning areas on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors, students must again swipe their badge to enter the turnstiles.  The badge reader is on the right-hand side of the turnstile and displays a green rectangle where the badge is to be scanned.
  • There is a $20 lost card fee. If students lose a badge, they should see the front desk EC receptionist to sign in for the day and arrange to order a new badge.  
  • Assigned badges must be turned in at the end of the school year or end of the EC course.  Students not returning the badge at the end of the year will also be assessed the $20 fee to their student account.
  • Student access to the building is from 6:30am to 3pm.
  • Here is a video demonstrating how to use the turnstiles. We will also have a training period of time to help students learn to use their badges and the turnstiles.
