Introducing New Bengal Cards

Introducing the new Bengal Card design. All current and future students, faculty, and staff are required to obtain the new card fall semester of 2011. Click on the Bengal Card Plus tab to find out how you can turn your Bengal Card in to a bankable debit MasterCard with the ISU Federal Credit Union and Idaho State University. Both full-time and part-time students are required to have a valid ISU Bengal Card as proof of enrollment. New students receive one Bengal Card at no charge. Returning students keep the same card each year. The card is electronically re-validated each semester the student is enrolled and fees are paid.
