Students routinely type usernames and passwords to log on to campus intranets and gain access to academic databases, e-books, and other network resources. Fingerprint authentication can facilitate the verification of student identity increasing security, reducing theft, and protecting student information.
Students entering testing centers must authenticate themselves against photo ID, ensuring they are the ones taking the tests. While campus administrators can verify students against photo ID, distance learners pose difficult challenges for authentication. Test center fraud diminishes the student's education and de-values the college's reputation. Fingerprint authentication can ensure the right students are taking the exams, whether on campus or off.
Students use photo ID cards to gain access to physical facilities, such as labs, gyms, libraries, and computer rooms. These cards are frequently lost, stolen, or damaged. Colleges can increase security by substituting fingerprint readers in place of ID cards, streamlining student access. Further, in the event of theft, fingerprint authentication can provide detailed records about who accessed the facility.

Students must supply passwords to access their records, enroll in courses, update their accounts, log on to college intranets, and access academic databases. When passwords are hacked, student grades can be tampered with, or sensitive personal information can be compromised. Colleges have a responsibility to protect the information assets of their students, and there is no better way to do this than through fingerprint authentication.

When entering classes, students must often sign an attendance sheet, but it is not uncommon for students to sign in absent friends. Further, the list of signatures does little for the professor who can't put faces to names. Fingerprint authentication not only ensures attendance is correct, but also automates and tallies attendance records. Fingerprints can be linked to student pictures, making it easy for teachers to call on student names.
