In reply to Evan Donaldson’s Letter to the Editor, “New semester, new absurdities,” (Jan. 30), I wanted to let him know that we’re working on doing exactly what he suggests: doing away with the fee-receipt card.
High tech in the area of the ID cards is just beginning on our campus. Our new system is only 9 months old.
Our office is working in conjunction with the University Cashier’s Office, and we hope to be able to run some tests this summer using a swipe of the magnetic card strip on the ID card to check whether a student is currently enrolled.
Because the university has to plan so far ahead, it may be another year before we can do away with the fee-receipt cards, but we’re all looking forward to doing exactly that.
