RusAg’s campus card is a multifunctional tool that combines financial and non-financial services. Students can apply for scholarship enrollment on the campus card, and university employees can apply for payroll. The card can be used for both regular offline payments, including contactless payment, and online payments for goods and services, such as educational ones. You can withdraw money from the card at ATMs, its owners have an access to mobile and Internet banking, as well as the ‘Harvest’ loyalty program. At the same time, the card can serve as a pass to the territory of the university, it can be used as a library card, it can also be used to log in to the personal account of a student or employee, which will reflect the electronic timetable, examination sheets, record books, etc. An additional option for campus cards – the ability to place the logo of the university on it.
