Express Card Policies & Disclosures

The Owens Express ID Card (Express Card) is an identification (ID) card with a stored-value function used by Owens Students, Employees, Retirees, and Guests on and off campus. Students present the Express Card as an Owens ID to use computer labs, testing center, library, conduct business at College Offices and use as a stored-value function on campus. To obtain an Express Card, students must be registered for classes and present photo identification to the Department of Public Safety. There is no charge for the first Owens Express ID Card. The Express Card remains the property of Owens Community College. It is non-transferable and must be presented upon request to college personnel, or when attending activities or facilities, or when used as a stored-value card.

The Express Card stored-value account is non-interest bearing. Only the person pictured on the card is authorized to spend money from that account. Owens reserves the right to change the account terms and conditions at any time. If a change reduces limits or restricts the account holder's rights under the terms and conditions, the College will give at least twenty (20) calendar days’ notice by mail. However, if an immediate change is necessary for security reasons, the College may first make the change and then notify the account holder.


You can put money on your Express Card on the web by logging in to Ozone, at any of the Value Transfer Stations on campus, or you can drop a check into the secure payment drop box located outside Oserve on the Toledo campus. You can also mail in a check (please include your OCID number) to Owens Community College, Attn: Student Accounts, PO Box 10,000, Toledo, Ohio 43699.
