Mobile Credentials

The Bear Card is now Mobile!

Using the contact-less capabilities in your smartphone, the Bear Card now grants access to services normally featured in a traditional physical plastic ID card.
The Mobile Bear Card along with our Cloud Card Online Photo submission eliminates the need to visit the Bear Card Office in person, therefore continuing Mercer University’s commitment to minimize exposure and maintain social distancing.

By default, mobile credentials will be activated for all incoming students. A physical card may be purchased for $35.00* at the Auxiliary Services Bear Card office located on the Atlanta and Macon campus. Enrollment verification and government issued ID is required.

* plus tax and applicable credit/debit card processing fee

You can not have an active mobile credential AND an active physical card.


Contact the office at 478-301-2929 for more information about any fees that may apply for lost/stolen/damaged replacement cards.
