Your Capital ID Card

  • About Your Capital ID Card

    Every student, faculty and staff needs a Capital ID Card to:

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

    Treat your Capital ID Card as you would any other identification card, such as a driver's license. Keep your Capital ID Card in a safe place, and do not punch holes, bend or damage it. There is a $15 replacement fee for lost or damaged cards.

    Getting Your Capital ID Card

    Faculty and staff will be sent to IT during their first days on campus to have a photo taken. For new students, they will have an ID photo taken as part of orientation. All student ID cards will be distributed to students upon their arrival to campus during fall or spring semester. Students may also pick up their ID card at the Residential and Commuter Life Office. Graduate-level students should contact their academic office to obtain their ID card. If you did not attend orientation, you can get your ID photo and card from the Information Technology office. Just bring a photo ID and current class schedule with your student ID number.

    After you get your ID, don't forget to visit the Blackmore Library Circulation Desk to activate your barcode, and swing by the Capital Court Dining Room to verify that your meal plan is activated!
