HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – Marshall University students can use their own electronic devices to access buildings on campus, pay for meals and other uses.

Officials at the university in Huntington, West Virginia, announced the launch Tuesday of school-issued identification cards on iPhone and Apple Watch.

Marshall says it’s the first school in West Virginia and among the first 10 nationwide to offer the technology that uses readers where the ID cards are accepted on and off campus.

Apple says the arrangement enables students to leave their physical wallets behind.

Other mobile ID tasks include buying items in the university bookstore or in vending machines and printing documents.

The mobile ID works with iPhone 6 and later models and Apple Watch Series 1 and later.
