ID Cards

Students are expected to carry their student ID card at all times. It is expected that students will present the card to appropriate personnel upon request. Student ID cards are necessary for dining room access, board plan purchases, library use, ARC use, access to computer labs, and access to residence halls. Students may also be asked to produce their cards in the case of a medical problem or other situation in which rapid identification is critical. Similarly, students may be asked to produce their cards in situations involving alleged violations of institutional regulations or of local, state, or federal laws. Campus safety officers, residence life staff and other institutional personnel may also request to see a student ID card to identify students when assistance is needed and to identify persons who do not belong on campus. ID cards are the property of the institution and governed by the regulations of the institution. ID cards are non-transferable, and any misuse of the card by its holder or another party may result in disciplinary action. Those not carrying cards may be assessed additional disciplinary sanctions.

Lost or stolen ID cards should be reported to the Office of Campus Safety and Police immediately so that they can be deactivated and a new card can be issued. Students seeking a replacement ID should report to the office with another form of photo ID to obtain a new card. A replacement fee of $10.00 will be assessed for any lost ID card. For more information about ID card violations, please see the section on suggested minimum judicial sanctions elsewhere in this handbook.

Cards that are damaged or not working properly may be brought to the Office of Campus Safety and Police and will be replaced at no charge, provided that the card replaced is the most recently issued card; if it is not, a fee will be applied.

Questions and concerns about ID cards should be directed to the Office of Campus Safety and Police, 610 861-1421. The office is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
