Replacement Card for Current Students: In order for a current student to receive a replacement OneCard they must be registered for at least one class at Sac State. If they meet this requirement, they can complete an application for a replacement OneCard found in the Bursar's Office.

Temporary Affiliates (90-180 day employees, volunteers, interns, etc.)

Temporary Affiliates (individuals closely affiliated with the University or are hired as a temporary employee by a campus department) and employees of Auxiliary or non-campus departments may receive a OneCard. The Department sponsoring these individuals needs to complete the Departmental Approval for Employee OneCard. The employee must bring the form to the Bursar's Office in Lassen Hall, Room 1001, along with a valid driver license or passport. Employees will then be asked to complete a OneCard Application. (University Enterprises, Inc., Associated Students, Capital Public Radio, University Union, ATS and the USGS must provide an account number on the form. If no account number is provided, the employee requesting the card will be responsible to provide the $15 card fee.) (PLEASE NOTE: Temporary Affiliates receive the ability to deposit money into their OneCard Hornet Bucks Account to make on-campus purchases. No other campus privileges are automatically given to the cardholder unless the sponsoring campus department requests other privileges and the unit providing the services agrees to extend it to the cardholder, such as library privileges or facilities key issue.)
