With the 2019-2020 school year right around the corner, Apple is making student life a little easier. The company on Tuesday announced it's expanding Apple Wallet support to 12 new universities.
The list includes:
- Clemson University
- Georgetown University
- University of Tennessee
- University of Kentucky
- University of San Francisco
- University of Vermont
- Arkansas State University
- South Dakota State University
- Norfolk State University
- Louisburg College
- University of North Alabama
- Chowan University
Once a student's ID is added to Apple Wallet, they can hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a reader anywhere a physical student ID card is accepted on and off campus, according to Apple. The integration ensures you always have your student ID on you—and protected by two-factor authentication, too.
In addition to today's expansion, Apple said it's also adding support for CBORD, Allegion, and HID, in an effort to bring more student IDs to Apple Wallet.
