Bronco Card Confiscation – Policy Development

Bronco Card policy will include language that refers to service venues and would have specific language about a consistent confiscation process. Each service venue on campus would take responsibility for Bronco Card confiscation due to misuse and/or fraudulent use. Each venue would need to articulate specific internal protocol that supports the protocol outlined below.

  • Definition
    • Misuse/Fraudulent use: The use of a Boise State ID card that is not his/her own. It is prohibited to use another students’ ID for buying student/guest tickets, buying/using meals, using the recreational facilities, accessing restricted areas/building without proper authorization and checking out items at the library. This list is not limited to any other uses that may arise.
  • Protocol
    • Fraudulent use will be reported and the unauthorized user may be subject to disciplinary action.
    • First offense: Confiscate and turn over to the Bronco Card office with explanation of reason for confiscation to the Bronco Card Manager. If the individual is an active student, the card will be returned to the owner if picked up within 10 business days.  After 10 business days, the Student ID card will be destroyed and the student will be assessed a lost card fee for a replacement card (see Bronco Card Office for fee amount). If the individual is not an active student, the card is destroyed immediately. Bronco Card Operations will keep a record in Bronco Card system of the confiscated card and reason why it was confiscated. Refer to Office of Students Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) for conduct process if flagrant misuse suspected.
      • Upon receipt of a confiscated card by Bronco Card Operations, the Bronco Card Office notifies the student via Boise State email that they have 10 business days in which to pick up their card or the card will be destroyed and a lost card fee assessed upon issuance of a replacement card.
      • If it can be determined that the card was stolen, the person who stole the card will be referred to OSRR who will hear the case and assign appropriate sanctions.
    • Second offense: Confiscated card will be turned into the Bronco Card Operations Office.  The Bronco Card office will refer the offense to OSRR for conduct process and assessment of administrative fee of $15.
      • History concerning the misuse of the Student ID card will be shared by the Bronco Card Operations Office with OSRR.  The Bronco Card Operations Office will hold the Student ID Card and enforce the action recommended when they are notified by OSRR of their decision.
      • OSSR will notify the student of their decision.
