highlander card

While attending MCC, your ID or Highlander Student ID Card will become an essential part of your student life. Your card gives you access to many services on campus, including print & copy machines, drink machines, sporting and cultural events, and can act as a debit card for off campus use. Food Service provides a discount on meals if purchased with your card.

McLennan Community College has partnered with BankMobile to deliver your financial aid refund and provide you with your official School ID card (Highlander One Card). For more information about BankMobile, visit this link: http://bankmobiledisbursements.com/refundchoicesid/.

MAC Money

These are funds stored on your Highlander Student ID Card used specifically for on-campus purchases. Your MAC Money account and the optional BankMobile Vibe account are two different accounts. If you have both, you must let the clerk in the bookstore know which account you'd like your purchase credited to. Vending machines and copiers automatically take funds from your MAC Money account. You can add MAC Money to your card at the MAC Express Machine in the Learning Technology Center

How can I use my Highlander Student ID Card?
The card can be used for all existing ID card services, such as checking out library books, purchasing items from our bookstore and dining facilities, and printing and copying in the library and in campus labs. Your ID card should be carried with you at all times while on campus for identification as an MCC student.
