Why do I need a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when I link my Crimson ID Card?
Student and employees need to select a PIN because your PIN enables your ID Card to function at ATMs and retail locations that accept STAR and PLUS for any PIN based transaction. As a safety measure, you should never share or write down your PIN.
Grove City College and PNC Bank, National Association, have entered a university banking arrangement with an emphasis on expanding the use of the Crimson ID Card to include ATM and pin-based debit purchasing at retailers that accept STAR functionality for the university's students, faculty and staff.
PNC's ability to offer these services builds on an existing relationship between PNC and Grove City College.
Students linking their identification card to PNC accounts will benefit from the added safety of PIN-based security, requiring students to enter their private Personal Identification Number every time they wish to access an ATM or to make a purchase at retailers that accept STAR.
