  • About Your Student ID

    Every student needs a Capital Student ID Card to:

    • Access certain buildings
    • Use your meal plan
    • Check out books from the library

    You can even use your card as a debit card if you open a new account with U.S. Bank.  Treat your ID card like your social security card.  Put your card in a safe place and do not punch holes in it, bend it, or damage it. There is a replacement fee of $15 for damaged or lost cards.

    Getting Your Student ID Card

    New students will get an ID photo taken for their ID card during orientation.  All ID cards will be distributed to students upon their arrival to the campus during fall or spring semester.  If you will be living on campus, you can pick up your ID card through the Office of Residence Life.  If you are a commuter, you can obtain your card through the Office of Student Activities. Graduate level students should contact their registering academic department to obtain their ID card.  If you did not attend orientation, you can get an ID from the Office of IT.  Just bring : 

    • a photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport
    • a current class schedule with your student ID number

    After you get your ID, don’t forget to: 

    • Stop by the Blackmore Library Circulation Desk to have your barcode activated
    • Take it to the Capital Court Dining Room to verify that your meal plan is activated
