Wolf Card

The Wolf Card is the SUNY Adirondack student identification card and is your personal identification while on campus.

The Wolf Card features extend far beyond that of a simple ID card. Your Wolf Card provides access to the following:
• Residence Hall - for residential students
• Meal Plans - for both residential and commuter students
• TimberBucks - the campus declining balance account
• Laundry Services - for residential students
• Library - access as well as borrowing materials
• Computer Lab Services
• Campus Fitness Center
• Free Transportation - on Greater Glens Falls Transit during academic terms
• Student Activities - Admission and reduced prices to many college events and activities

Your non-transferable Wolf Card is your official SUNY Adirondack photo identification and is required for each full-time and part-time student. Your Wolf Card is issued during your first semester at SUNY Adirondack and lasts for your entire career at SUNY Adirondack.

The Faculty-Student Association of SUNY Adirondack offers a campus-wide declining balance account (TimberBucks) that is attached with your Wolf Card. Also, Chartwells Dining Services offers both residential and commuter students several meal plan options that are attached with the Wolf Card.

The Wolf Card system is administered by the Student Activities Office in conjunction with the Faculty-Student Association of SUNY Adirondack.

Wolf Card FAQs

In order to obtain your SUNY Adirondack Wolf Card, you will need to bring your current class schedule and your government-issued photo identification to the Student Activities Office, located upstairs in the Student Center.  Examples of acceptable forms of ID include: Drivers License or Non-Drivers License Identification Card; Passport; Birth certificate accompanied by another photo ID. (Students studying exclusively at the Wilton campus can obtain a Wolf Card on-site at the Wilton campus.)

All new cards take approximately 5 minutes to be processed by our computer system.  However, after that, your card will be activated.

You will need a new sticker each semester to ensure you continue receiving all the benefits of your Wolf Card.  You may obtain a new sticker from the Student Activities Office, located upstairs in the Student Center, or from the SUNY Adirondack Business Office, located in Warren Hall. (Note: Students studying exclusively at the Wilton campus can obtain a new sticker on-site at the Wilton campus.)

To activate your campus-wide declining balance account, TimberBucks, all you need to do is deposit funds into the account.  You can do that by visiting the SUNY Adirondack GET website.

Your Wolf Card is durable and is built to last the entire time you're a student here at SUNY Adirondack. Still, a little care and prevention should help your card last.

Do not tamper with the picture or information on the card.

Do not punch a key ring hole in your card.

Keep your Wolf Card away from magnets, computers and excessive heat.

Do not scratch the card -- if the printing is illegible, the card will not be accepted.

Do not put the card through the washing machine or the dryer.

Do not chew on your card.

Above all, do not lose your card. The encoded information is yours and yours alone.

As soon as you realize your Wolf Card is missing, visit the SUNY Adirondack GET website and click the link on the right that says "HELP! I lost my Wolf Card." 

SUNY Adirondack and the Faculty-Student Association of SUNY Adirondack are not liable for funds lost due to misuse or misplacement of your Wolf Card. Be responsible with your card and immediately report it as lost or stolen. Wolf Cards found in the possession of others will be confiscated immediately and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

After you have reported your card as lost or stolen, visit the Student Activities Office, located upstairs in the Student Center, to obtain a replacement card. The fee to replace your Wolf Card is $10. If the Student Activities Office is closed and you need to access your residence, visit Campus Security in the Residence Hall.

You will not lose the meals Points, or TimberBucks you have on your Wolf Card if you quickly report your card as lost or stolen through the SUNY Adirondack GET website. However, you will need to do this promptly in case some unscrupulous person finds your Wolf Card and uses it.

Deactivating your card protects your money on the card and prevents it from being used. Once your card is deactivated, you will need to purchase a new card from the Student Activities Office.

All of your balances will be transferred automatically to the new card.

If you're having problems using your Wolf Card, you should contact the FSA Business Office during normal business hours at 518.681.5610. The staff will help to try to determine what's wrong and find a solution.
