What is the HPU Passport Card?
As a cashless campus, the HPU Passport card is an exclusive transaction method for students, faculty and staff. In a unique university-city partnership, HPU has extended the Passport card footprint to include businesses throughout the city of High Point. Today, nearly 100 local businesses accept the card, providing exclusive access to nearly 5,000 customers. HPU receives no monetary gain from this partnership. The goal is simply to connect local businesses with a thriving university community.
How does High Point University promote my business as a Passport Partner?
