The Departmental Wright1 card is available to any department that applies for one with their Business Manager's approval. The DWC works as a credit card on campus, and carries a pre-determined dollar value set by the DWC application form (pdf). The monies on the card are not charged to the department unless they are used, charges are posted automatically on a nightly basis. The DWC can be restricted to copy machines only, or it can be given full access, which includes Dining Services, vending, print stations, etc. Where the card can be used is dictated by the DWC application form (pdf), again with the Business Manager's approval.
Note: For Funds beginning with "6", a signature is required from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, along with the grant start and end dates. For funds beginning with "5", a signature is required from the Foundation Office.
Changes to Existing DWC
Changes to your existing DWC can be made by submitting the Change of Status form (pdf). Send the completed form, which includes the required signatures of the department head and business manager, to the Wright1 Center, 055 Student Union. You will receive notification by phone or email when the changes are completed. All changes to existing DWC's must be made using the Change of Status form (pdf).
Departments have the option of purchasing generic conference cards with the department logo or some kind of conference theme printed as the card background. These conference cards can be used on campus the same as a Student or faculty/staff card. Artwork needs to be submitted to and approved by the Wright1 card administrator in advance.
If someone is affiliated with your department/organization and needs to have a Wright1 Card issued for any reason, please fill out the Affiliate Card Authorization Form (pdf). Have your affiliate bring the form to the Wright1 Card Center, 055 Student Union, when they are ready to have their card printed. The cost of each card is $5.
Note: If your affiliate will be issued a UID number, that must be completed before they have a Wright1 Card printed. UID numbers for affilitaes are generally issued through CaTS.
