Cyclone ID Card

This little card does more than you think. Your Cyclone student ID card is your ticket to dozens of services and discounted programs on and off campus. Besides being your official SCTCC student photo ID card, it gives you access to everything from library resources to health services to free bus rides.

SCTCC has partnered with U.S. Bank to provide students with Cyclone Card options.

The Cyclone ID card offers students access to:

  • Library/Resource Center privileges at SCSU/any state library
  • Discounted movie passes for Parkwood Cinema in Waite Park (purchased through SCTCC's The Bookstop only)
  • No monthly member fees at the St. Cloud YMCA (pay a one-time joiner fee)
  • Additional outside vendors for discounts as listed on the Advantages page
  • Free transportation to and from campus and throughout the St. Cloud area using the Metro Bus Fixed Route system (just swipe  your Cyclone ID card on the bus). Visit the St. Cloud Metro Bus website to view bus routes and schedules.
