The mission of the Residential Life Coordinators is to provide residential students a living environment that offers support and assistance to maximize their educational opportunities. Our goal is to offer residential facilities, programs and services that enhance student learning and support student success.

While living in an environment that promotes safety, students also benefit from the opportunity to learn about other cultures and lifestyles, form lifelong friendships and make lasting memories.

The convenience of living on campus provides students easy access to numerous campus resources such as faculty and academic advisors, the library, computer labs, the dining hall, recreational facilities, and student organizations. Additionally, students have the opportunity to interact with the CASC faculty outside the classroom by participating in a variety of campus-wide and residential programs.

Students who live in the residence halls vs. commuting to campus do better academically and are more likely to remain enrolled. Carl Albert State College provides approximately 350 students the opportunity to experience the unique academic and social environment of on-campus living through the Scholars Center, Residential Program Housing, and Athletic Housing. Residential students are a vital part of the CASC community and are encouraged to take advantage of college student activities, clubs and organizations and  recreational facilities.

A $75.00 non-refundable housing deposit/maintenance fee will be required and a CASC Housing and Meals Contract will be issued to students. All CASC Residential Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date the $75.00 non-refundable maintenance fee and contracts are received. Please be aware that our Residential Housing reaches maximum occupancy. You will be contacted by the Residential Life Coordinator concerning the status of your housing application.

Students can obtain a “Viking Card” student ID from the Student Affairs office. 

Students have the option of using their Viking ID card as a bankcard through Herring Bank, or using their card as just an ID Card. 

Students who choose to use their ID Card as a bank card will create a secure bank account through Herring Bank, a partner of CASC. 

Students who do use Herring Bank will receive disbursements, and refunds directly to their Herring Bank Account, and can use their Viking ID card as a Debit card. Students who do not use a Herring Bank Account, will establish a direct deposit to their own personal bank account.

Students can also use their Viking ID cards at local businesses who have partnered with CASC to offer Student discounts and promotions. 

To obtain a Student ID Card students must visit the office of student affairs, and request a Viking ID Card. Students first Viking ID cards are free, however a replacement card will cost $4. Students who will not use a herring bank account will need to bring their own bank account information to create a direct deposit setup.
