Student IDs at some universities, including Georgetown, can now be stored in the Wallet on iPhones and Apple Watches.

The latest universities working with Apple to offer contactless student IDs are: Arkansas State University, Chowan University, Clemson, Georgetown, Louisburg College, Norfolk State and South Dakota State, as well as the University of Kentucky and of North Alabama, San Francisco, Tennessee and Vermont.

Contactless student IDs are already available for Apple Wallet users at Duke University, Johns Hopkins, Marshall, Mercer and Temple, as well as the University of Oklahoma and of Alabama.

Apple said it is also adding support for campus credentialing outfits CBORD, Allegion and HID, and that school credentials on the iPhone and Apple Watch are protected by two-factor authentication.

Apple's contactless student IDs come to 12 more schools.
A new school year is approaching, and for Apple that means an expansion of its contact-free student IDs. Apple Watch and iPhone owners can tap their devices to access campus facilities in 12 more schools, and these are institutions you'll likely recognize -- Georgetown University, the University of Tennessee and the University of San Francisco are some of the institutions (we'll provide the full list below). Considering that tap-based IDs were limited to just seven schools before, this is welcome news if you'd rather not pull out plastic to grab lunch or access the gym. The expansion comes alongside support for school credential formats from Allegion, CBORD and HID.
