All students enrolled for the current school quarter are entitled to a Campus Card. This is your official university ID card, and you are issued just one active card.
Note: All students receive their first UCSD Campus Card for free. Any replacement ID cards thereafter will cost $15.00, unless your old ID card meets one of the conditions in our Wear and Tear Policy.
Note: Students are only allowed to have one UCSD Campus Card at any time, which helps prevent fraud and the production of fake ID cards. In order to replace any old, damaged ID cards, students must surrender their current ID card to Campus Card personnel. The Campus Card Office cannot reactivate old ID cards.
Note: The UCSD Campus Cards Office does not provide Campus Cards for students enrolled with UCSD Extension. UCSD Extension students can receive their ID Card at the English Language Institute building located on the UCSD Extension campus (map).
Obtain your card by following the steps below according to your status (freshman, grad student, etc.).
The Campus Cards Online Photo Tool will be open for photo submission from May 1st through August 1st each year for ONLY incoming students. Please review the guidelines on the photo tool carefully prior to submission of your photo. If photos do not meet ALL criteria, they will be denied, and students will be required to submit a new photo.
ALL students will need to present a valid and physical form of identification before receiving their first student Campus Card.
