Apple Brings Support For Student ID In Apple Wallet To 12 More Universities In a press release, Apple announced today that in the coming school year, more than 100,000 students across the nation will be able to add their contactless student IDs to the Apple Wallet app, letting them use their student IDs to get into dorms, buy lunch and more using an iPhone or Apple Watch.
In addition to Duke University, University of Oklahoma, University of Alabama, Temple University, Johns Hopkins University, Marshall University and Mercer University who already offer such feature, students at Clemson University, Georgetown University, University of Tennessee, University of Kentucky, University of San Francisco, University of Vermont, Arkansas State University, South Dakota State University, Norfolk State University, Louisburg College, University of North Alabama, and Chowan University will also enjoy the ease and convenience of carrying the student IDs on their Apple devices.
“We’re happy to add to the growing number of schools that are making getting around campus easier than ever with iPhone and Apple Watch,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. “We know students love this feature. Our university partners tell us that since launch, students across the country have purchased 1.25 million meals and opened more than 4 million doors across campuses by just tapping their iPhone and Apple Watch.”
Once a student ID has added to Apple Wallet, he/she can simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a reader anywhere physical student ID cards are accepted on and off-campus, and in some cases, they will need to authenticate it with Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode, with school credentials on an iPhone and Apple Watch are also protected by two-factor authentication.
