Using your OneCard around campus.

The Waukesha County Technical College OneCard program, powered by the Give Something Back NetworkSM, provides students, faculty and staff the convenience of carrying just one card or contactless tag for all of your needs around campus. Your OneCard functions as a campus ID card as well as an FDIC-insured, prepaid card that works like cash on and off campus. No fees are charged for purchases or cash back at participating merchants*. It can also serve as your ATM/debit card by linking your WCTC OneCard with your U.S. Bank checking account.

Your contactless tag works just like your OneCard. It adheres easily to your cell phone, iPod or other device — so you won't leave home without it. When the tag is waved within one inch of a Give Something Back Network contactless reader, the payment or verification process begins.

Your OneCard/tag can be used for:

wctc card
  • Identification
  • Dining and vending
  • Bookstore and library
  • Printing and copying
  • Off-campus purchases (Note: some merchants may not accept the tag)

Make your WCTC OneCard the only card on campus.

Heartland Payment Systems' Give Something Back (GSB) Network is a growing, nationwide network of cardholders, sponsoring organizations, merchants and donation recipients that makes it easy to support your community while you do something routine — make purchases with your OneCard/tag.

If you're on the go or out of town, remember you can use your OneCard/tag to make purchases wherever the OneCard or Give Something Back Network logo is displayed.

To find Give Something Back Network merchants in your community or others, click here.

For every purchase you make at a participating merchant with your OneCard/tag, the Give Something Back Network "returns" 1.5% of the purchase price to you. One-third of that 1.5% will be automatically donated to Waukesha County Technical College — the sponsoring organization of your OneCard. You can donate the remaining 1% to the WCTC Foundation — or select other eligible nonprofits to support when you set up your OneCard account online. Alternatively, you can elect to receive 1% cash back — that's money back in your wallet.
