Welcome Fam!

The Viking One Card is the official Identification card and access card for Elizabeth City State University. The Viking One Card is a multipurpose card, serving as the official ID card and as an on-campus debit card. All ECSU students, faculty, and staff are required to have the Viking One Card with them while they are on campus. If the card will be used for identification only, there is no requirement to deposit funds in the Viking One account. The Viking One Card is the property of the University and should be carried with the cardholder at all times while on campus. The ID card is not transferable.  Altering or lending this card will subject the cardholder to disciplinary action. Only the person pictured on the ID card will be allowed to use the card.
