Apple Wallet’s Student ID Support Expands to Johns Hopkins University

Apple Wallet’s Student ID Support Expands to Johns Hopkins University

Apple added support for Student ID cards in the Wallet app when iOS 12 and watchOS debuted last year. Three universities supported the feature at launch. Apple today has expanded the feature to the fifth university in the United States.

The Baltimore Sun reports John Hopkins University students can now use their iPhone or Apple Watch to enter buildings, print papers at the campus library or buy items at the university book store.

Enabled by NFC, the Wallet app will hold a student’s digital “J-Card” and can be used from the student’s iPhone or Apple Watch. J-Cards can also be used on Android phones.

“Offering a digital ID option reflects our continuing commitment to enhance the services provided to students,” Kevin G. Shollenberger, the university’s Vice Provost for Student Affairs, said in a statement. “We are excited about this and look forward to seeing students using phones to get into residence halls, for dining, and to buy things at area businesses.”

In a support document, the school explains the digital J-Card can be used to can unlock buildings, print documents, and pay for food and other goods without authenticating via Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode, as Express Mode is enabled by default.

Several businesses near the university are accepting NFC payments via J-Card. Those businesses include Eddie’s, Pete’s Grille, Chipotle, 7-Eleven, CVS and Insomnia Cookies.

If you’re a John Hopkins student, this should help you set up your digital J-Card.

Johns Hopkins University marks the fifth university to store student ID’s in Apple’s Wallet app. The other four schools are Duke, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Temple.
