Student inserting their student ID at a RaiderCard machine.

Your RaiderCard — you know, that blue card you got at orientation with your student I.D. number on it — it's the official GRCC student ID and your on campus debit card. Use it and you'll access free and money saving resources on and off campus, including:

  • Academic Support - Check in with your RaiderCard to access tutoring and computer labs across campus.
  • Gerald R. Ford Fieldhouse - Do you work out? You do now — with your RaiderCard you get free access to all the amenities at the Fieldhouse.
  • Library - Check out books and access other resources in the library.
  • Parking - Use your RaiderCard to park in a college ramp or lot for $3.50 per exit. Otherwise, cash rates are $2 per half-hour, or $12 per day.
  • Printing -Swipe your RaiderCard at a lab, Library, Student Life or the Enrollment Center printer and pay only $0.10 cents per page for black and white printing, and $1.00 per page for color.
  • Where to eat - There are many on campus dining options and they all take your RaiderCard.  You can also pay with your RaiderCard in either of the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education lab kitchens — Art & Bev's Bistro and The Heritage Restaurant.
