Renewing your SmartPass Clipper
To renew your SmartPass, visit the General Services front counter, present your SmartPass Clipper and Tower Card to the staff, and pay the $25 renewal fee. All SmartPass Clippers that have not been renewed will be deactivated. The fee for renewing the SmartPass after the deadline is $35 ($25 renewal plus a $10 late renewal fee). Please note: Your Smartpass will not be immediately reactivated, it will take 5-7 business days to process the reactivation.

Renewal notices will be sent to your preferred email on your MySJSU account when the semester starts. The deadline to renew for the Spring term is February and the deadline to renew for the Fall term is September.
If you are not able to renew in person, you can mail a check (payable to Associated Students) with a copy of your Tower Card and SmartPass Clipper (serial number showing) to:
