Golden Eagle Card FAQ
How long will the door be unlocked?
After you have entered you PIN, the door will be unlocked for five (5) seconds before re-locking and requiring you to swipe your One Card and enter your PIN again.
How do I deactivate the alarm inside the classroom?
The alarm requires a code to disarm. You will be given this code by your department (Dean's Office). If you do not remember the code or the alarm will not disarm, you will need to contact Campus Police at (323)343-3700.
What if I need to get into a designated classroom and my One Card/PIN does not work?
If for any reason you cannot gain access to the classroom, you should call the Golden Eagle One Card Office at (323)343-6800 for assistance.
What if I forget my PIN?
If you do not remember your PIN, please come by the Golden Eagle One Card Office to create a new PIN. To ensure your security and privacy, we will not be issuing PIN over phone or email.
What if there is an emergency, who should I call?
In the event of an emergency, please contact Campus Police at (323)343-3700.
Is there an expiration date on my One Card?
The One Card is valid as long as you are employed and/or current enrolled student. However, the door access privileges will expire at the end of each term.
What happens if my One Card is lost or stolen?
You should contact the Golden Eagle One Card Office immediately so that we can deactivate the card in question. You can then come in to obtain a new card for a $5.00 replacement fee.
Can I lend my One Card to someone else?
For security reasons, we encourage you to not share your One Card. The owner of the One Card assumes all financial and criminal liability for any misuse.
