5. Responsibilities as a Cardholder 

  • Deactivating or Reinstating your Go Cisco Card - Faculty/Staff, Students, and other college cardholders do not have to surrender their cards upon discontinuing their employment/association with Cisco College. We have an automatic privilege assignment/removal process to enable or disable the ID card. If the card has the banking option, disabling the card would not deactivate the banking feature of the card.
