Important Service Note

During the Penn Community upgrade on August 9, 2022, PennCard will be unable to issue PennCards for records that do not already exist in Penn Community prior to 8:00 AM August 9. 

Cards affected will be sponsored affiliates such as Contractors, Consultants, and other guests; Courtesy cards (including cards for UPHS and Wistar employees); or cards for eligible spouses and children; and similar card types.  In addition, PennCard will be unable to issue PennCards that require an update in Penn Community (example: expiration date).
