To provide Student ID support in Samsung Wallet on Galaxy devices, Samsung is partnering with Transact Campus, a leader in innovative payment and Mobile Credential solutions for a connected campus, servicing more than 1,800 higher education institutions. After adding their school ID to Samsung Wallet, students will be able to use their device to unlock doors at places like dorm rooms and academic buildings. At select participating higher education institutions, students can also use their devices around campus for NFC-based payments at on-campus stores, vending machines, and more.
Fast Mode and Power Reserve on Samsung Wallet enable enhanced convenience for student life. With Fast Mode, students can tap their phone without needing to unlock it or turn on their screen. Power Reserve lets students tap to use their ID even when their phone has switched off due to low battery.
Fast Mode and Power Reserve are made possible because Student ID information stored on Samsung Wallet is kept in an isolated environment on the device itself — known as the embedded Secure Element — which offers one of the highest levels of hardware security in mobile category with a CC EAL6+ rating  to help protect against digital and physical hacking.
