Logger Card Policies and Procedures

Purpose

The Logger Card is the official University of Puget Sound ID card. It is the cardholder’s “proof” of affiliation with the university. The card allows access to various privileges at the university. The card may also give the cardholder access to optional services, including campus meal plans, packages at mail services and the bookstore.

 

Applicability

All Puget Sound students, employees, and qualifying university affiliates are eligible for a Logger Card. The Dining Services Office also produces specialized dining charge cards for various departments. ID Cards are not available for courtesy affiliates, visitors, vendors, alumni or spouses of university affiliates. Only the person pictured on the card is authorized to use the card to make purchases or conduct other business on it. Logger Card clients are issued only one identification card.  Duplicate Logger Cards must be surrendered to authorized personnel upon request for proper destruction.

 

Disclosure of Account Information

Account balance information will only be released to the account holder. Parents of the affiliate cannot request account information without consent from the student.

 

Financial Responsibility for Lost Cards

Lost, stolen, or misplaced cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311. To obtain a replacement card, go to the Dining Services Office (WSC 001) during business hours. There is a $15 charge for a reprint of a lost or stolen Logger Card.

 

Card Retention and Destruction

Dining and Conference Services will hold all lost/stolen cards returned to the department for 90 days. After that period, no lost/stolen Logger Cards will be returned to clients.

 

Obtaining a Logger Card

To obtain a Logger Card, go to the Dining Services Office (WSC 001) Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4: 30 p.m during the academic year. You must provide an official government issued ID card as proof of identity. All International students must show their passport. All Logger Cards cost $15. Students, faculty and staff will receive their first card free of charge.  Cardholders are responsible for picking up cards in person. Cards are not sent by mail.

 

More Information

  1. Lost or stolen cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311.

  2. If you are concerned about your card's security; you may request a “hold” on your account (until you determine your card is lost or stolen) at the Dining Services Office (WSC 001) during business hours.  If you are unable to find your card, you may report it as “lost" which will deactivate your meal plan and bookstore dollars immediately. Once deactivation occurs, you must obtain a new card to access your privileges.

  3. Never punch holes or deface your card beyond its normal everyday use. Cards that have been damaged require a $15 replacement fee.  For normal wear and tear, no replacement fee will be charged. At the time of replacement, the old card must be surrendered to the university.  Card holders may only possess one Logger Card.  Card holders may choose to reuse their old picture on the new card, or have a new picture taken at the time of replacement.

  4. Dining Dollars and Bookstore dollars are non-transferable.  Only the person pictured on the Logger Card will be allowed to spend from that account. The cardholder may be required to sign a receipt for goods received. 

  5. A valid card must be presented at the time of purchase.

  6. Meal Plan refunds are granted upon leaving or graduating from the university in the amount of $25 or less per semester.

  7. The Logger Card is an official document and form of university identification.  The picture on the card must be of the card holder only.  No hats, sunglasses, or objects may appear in the picture on the card.  “Silly” faces or gestures are not permitted.   This is enforced at the time of picture taking.

Foreign Languages & Literature

Studying a foreign language opens doors to the understanding of other cultures and the world around us. Our faculty believes that students should cultivate knowledge of at least one foreign culture through its language as an essential part of a liberal arts education. Encouraging study abroad and cultural study opportunities, the department offers a Dijon study program, immersive language houses, and a German program that contributes to the high number of Fulbright scholars teaching in Germany produced by the university.
