If you still have the NACS Print Card, the remaining value can be transferred to your UCI/Campus ID card. Your NACS Print Card should be in good condition and cannot be bent, cracked, scratched, and/or damaged in order for the transfer station to read it. OIT will void the old NACS Print Card and will not be returned after the transaction is complete.

You may also use the UCI/Campus ID card at some non-OIT labs on campus such as Engineering, ICS, Humanities, School of Law, Social Science, and UCI Libraries.
