A Minnesota State Mankato MavCARD is a university student ID and is delivered during Concurrent Enrollment orientation at the high school. Your first MavCARD is free. A replacement MavCARD may be obtained for $15.00 from the Campus Hub located in the Centennial Student Union on campus. A student's MavCARD is valid as long as they are enrolled in a Concurrent Enrollment course at Minnesota State Mankato.


Concurrent Enrollment students will activate their Minnesota State Mankato email (MavMAIL) during Concurrent Enrollment orientation at the high school. Students should check their MavMAIL regularly, as this is our main form of communication to all university students.
