Apple Expanding Contactless Student ID Cards to 12 More Universities in Coming School Year
Apple today announced that students at 12 additional universities will be able to add their student IDs to the Wallet app in the coming school year, allowing them to get around campus and make purchases using an iPhone or Apple Watch.
The expansion 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, and Chowan University.
Students simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a reader anywhere physical student ID cards are accepted — on and off campus. An optional Express Mode bypasses the need to authenticate with Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode, allowing for the quickest entry possible to buildings around campus.
Duke University, University of Oklahoma, University of Alabama, Temple University, Johns Hopkins University, Marshall University, and Mercer University rolled out contactless student IDs in the Wallet app last year.

There's goes my hope for contactless employee ID coming anytime soon.
I understand that employees want to see employee ID badge visible at all time. But I prefer to slap my phone or watch on the reader as opposed to pulling the ID from a lanyard.
I talking about small local libraries who will never add digital membership cards for Apple Wallet on their own.
