Warning to Hunter students and Faculty: Public Safety recently became aware of an internet scam where the web site, or e-mail, appears to be another Hunter member asking you to become a "secret shopper". In this scam the unknown person would mail you a check  and request that you deposit it and immediately go out and purchase a certain gift card or product and mail it back to them. Within two days after depositing the check that was mailed to you the bank will contact you to say that the check was worthless or insufficient funds. Please be aware of these various internet scams.

Using Your OneCard (Hunter ID) at Hunter

This is a friendly reminder from the Office of the Dean of Students regarding Hunter College's policy on using your OneCard while on campus at Hunter College. These measures are in place for your own safety and that of the Hunter community.

  1. All members of the college community are responsible for having their Hunter OneCard with them while on campus at all times.
  2. Your Hunter OneCard is non-transferrable and may not be used by any other person, for any reason.
  3. Allowing other persons to use your Hunter OneCard to gain entry on to Hunter's campus or to use campus facilities is a violation of Hunter College's policy and may result in that person receiving a summons for Trespassing.
  4. Improper use of your Hunter ID may also result in your card being deactivated.

For more information about the One Card, please visit the One Card website.
