Does your card look like one of these:

Laptop Add-on Cards - Newegg.com

Might help to know what the PCMCIA card is used for, USB, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, etc.

Yes, it does make sense as the PCMCIA card [or PC Card] slots on some much older Notebooks/Laptops actually could accommodate 1 card like you have or 2 of the thinner cards at the same time, haven't seen one of those in quite awhile as the advent of USB ports lessened the need for the card slots and helped make the cases thinner/lighter. Sounds like you may need to get a newer card unless the course has you stuck with the thicker one.

I just found this page, might browse around in it a bit:

The one on the right appears to be even thicker than 2 of the one on the left would be, may not fit anything except some type of card reader.
