Replacement ID Cards

There is a $25 fee to replace:
  • A lost card
  • The photo
  • A damaged ID card (unless the damage was determined by ID Card Services to be due to a badly-printed card)
  • Student name or college on card

To request a replacement ID Card, please visit ID Card Services during open hours:
  • If your card is damaged, bring the damaged card to ID Card Services. If you don't, you will be charged $25 for your replacement card
  • YOU MUST BRING a valid, government-issued, photo ID is required to show to ID Card Services to pick up your ID card; a photo of one will also suffice. Students should also be ready to provide their student ID number
  • If you would like a new photo with your replacement, you MUST upload it using our CloudCard process and receive the approval email PRIOR to coming to ID Card Services for the new card.
  • Staff or Faculty MUST have a signed recharge form on file, in hand, or sent via email for us to make them a replacement ID Card

There is no fee to replace:
  • Persons wishing to change their identity and/or lived name. Please see the University of California's Gender Recognition and Lived Name Policy for more information.
  • Stolen ID cards (must include a police report)

*Student replacements are charged to the student account once a request has been made. In the instance where a card has been lost, we cannot reactivate it if a new one has been printed. For non-student replacements, a Recharge Form must be signed and emailed to us in order to get a replacement card.

For Library users: Staff and faculty members will need to visit the library to activate their new or replacement ID card.

Please take good care of your card. Damage to your card and the magnetic stripe may prevent you from obtaining services or accessing buildings.
