Got Card allows Cerritos College students to use their student IDs for benefits and discounts.

Marketing Major Miledy Hernandez talks about the Got Card campaign.

“Got Card is a campaign that has made a committee to get ideas and help students get discounts benefits and freebies.

“The committee has been working on a flyer where it has different categories of what the benefits are on campus, in the game room, the student health center, the learning resource center, and the library,” she said.

Students can get discounts on movie tickets, select gyms and free admission to select museums.

Hernandez talks more about the Got Card, “I think this is really important to just bring it out to the students and let them know that maybe this can help them save money; this can help them to maybe get free stuff.”

Student IDs can be used to get free food like In-N-Out during welcome week, or Chick-Fil-A during club info night.

Students can also use it to get a free membership to the Cerritos City library, which charges a $100 membership fee for non-Cerritos residents.

Hernandez continues to say, “I think this is really important to just bring it out to the students and let them know that maybe this can help them save money; this can help them to maybe get free stuff.”

Students pay a CCSA (Cerritos College Student Activities) fee every semester.

Hernandez explained, “One thing that I found out talking to other students and the administration is that there is a CCSA fee that every student pays every semester regardless whether you get your i.d with your current semester sticker or you don’t.

“Every semester when you pay your fees or financial pays your fees, you’re paying 10 dollars for an ID that you’re not getting and that you’re not getting the benefits for.”

Students like Kinesiology major Alex Carrillo has not heard of the Got Card campaign.

He thinks that it is a good idea and that the student government should promote it more by posting it online, putting up flyers around the school, and letting the teachers know so that the teachers can provide the students with the information.

Another student who has not heard of the Got Card campaign is Speech Communications major Fernando Hernandez who thinks getting discounts is a good idea.

“Discounts are always a plus for students, especially for students who are on a tight budget.”
