Yes. Once this project is completed, all readers on campus will be contactless. In order to use the new readers at access-controlled doors, dining, bookstore, etc., a new contactless card will be required.
Even if you do not require access to any access-controlled doors, are taking classes remotely, etc., the EagleCard is your campus ID and it is required that you have one.
Contact the EagleCard Office at EagleCard@tntech.edu to inquire.

The new system provides us with a secure, encrypted card that provides an overall better user experience.
The contactless cards offer a more reliable access control experience with more security, better monitoring, and ease of operation.
Buildings will be transitioned to the new contactless card system in the order listed in the status table below. The dates will be updated as more information is available.
The new access control system will be based on contactless near-field communications (NFC) technology. This will result in no wear & tear to your card and will provide a better and more reliable experience. The new user portal provides many more options.
If you have questions that aren't answered here, please reach out to the myTECH Helpdesk.
