Comet Cards

All Concordia University, St. Paul students receive a Comet Card that functions as the official Campus Identification Card. This card has many features that you’re able to activate and begin using the day you receive your card.


Your Comet Card includes basic information such as your identification number (L number). This number will be very useful to you in your program and is referenced frequently. Your Comet Card also serves as your library card. For more information about the library, please view their website.

Extra Features

Flex Points are used to purchase items at the Commons Café, the Student Union, and the Dining Hall.

To activate please contact Card Services at 651-641-8788 or email
