CarolinaCard


Who Is Eligible

When you start working at UofSC, you are eligible for a CarolinaCard and so is your spouse or partner. We're happy to offer certain exclusive benefits to the family members of our valued university employees.

Spouses of Students, Faculty and Staff

Fee: $15.00

Spouse must be accompanied by the current USC student, staff or faculty member in order to get a card.

You must provide:

  • Current USC student, staff or faculty CarolinaCard
  • Valid driver's license, military ID or passport for student and spouse
  • Copy of your marriage certificate recognized by the State of South Carolina
  • Proof of insurance

If you do not have a copy of your marriage certificate and you were married in the state of South Carolina, you can obtain one through the Office of Vital Statistics, located on the first floor of the DHEC building at 2600 Bull Street. The cost is $12.00.

 

Spouses of International Students

Fee: $15.00

If you were married outside of the state of South Carolina, you can call the county court system where you were married to obtain a copy.

All of the following must be presented:

  1. Current USC student, staff or faculty CarolinaCard
  2. Valid driver's license, military ID or passport for student and spouse
  3. Copy of your marriage certificate recognized by the State of South Carolina
  4. Both sides of the I-20 form completed and either of the following:
    • J-1 form, "Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor Status"
    • F-1 form, "Certificate of Eligibility for Nominating Student"
      (These forms can be obtained at the International Student Office.)


PlusOne Card for Faculty and Staff

Fee: $15.00

The university grants library privileges — and the option to purchase a Blatt PE or Strom Thurmond Wellness Center gym membership — to PlusOne cardholders.

Additionally, the PlusOne ID card allows UofSC employees to sponsor one other person living in the same household as a PlusOne cardholder.

You must:
  • be 18-years-old or older.
  • reside continuously with the UofSC employee.
  • not be in a land-lord tenant relationship with the employee.
Obtain your Employee PlusOne Card
You must:
  • accompany the faculty or staff member to the CarolinaCard office.
  • complete the PlusOne Designee ID Authorization Form.
  • provide proof that the PlusOne designee lives in the same household and is at least 18 years of age (driver's license or other official ID indicating birthdate/permanent address will suffice)
ID Replacement Fees

  • $35.00 for a lost card
