Identification Cards

Student identification (I.D.) cards are issued to all students. ID cards are the property of the University of Louisiana Monroe and are provided for appropriate use for identification, transactions and access to services. ID cards shall be surrendered upon request to ULM Police or other university personnel. A student I.D. card is required for admission to all University events. Full and part-time students’ I.D. cards are required for admission to athletic events. Both full-time and part-time student I.D. cards will be required for checking out library material and transactions at the La Capitol Federal Credit Union. The ID card is reactivated each semester you are registered for classes. Replacement cost for I.D. cards is $15. Students resigning or graduating from the University should keep their I.D.s for future use. The card is not transferable and is valid as long as the holder continues his/her specific affiliation with the University of Louisiana Monroe. Any misuse, alteration or fabrication of the card will subject the bearer to disciplinary action by the University. All current and former students in good standing five years since their last card was issued will be provided a new card at no charge.

Cards issued to employees and individuals affiliated with the University of Louisiana Monroe must be surrendered to the appropriate department upon separation. Cards issued to persons participating in special programs, (e.g., camps, workshops, etc.) sponsored by the University must be returned to the sponsoring department upon completion of the program. Retirees turn their cards in and are reissued a retiree card after concluding their service to the University.

Cards are issued and replaced at the WIDS Office located in University Commons II, 4031 Northeast Drive, Suite 2153. Cards that malfunction due to a faulty computer chip and not due to misuse will be re-issued at no charge provided the old card is returned at the time of service. There is a $15 fee to replace a card for name or identification number changes, and for lost, stolen or damaged ID cards. Do not leave cards in direct sunlight or expose to extreme heat or open flame (clothes dryer or iron.) Do not machine wash, use as a scraping tool, do not crimp, bend, or twist card, do not immerse in alcohol, ethanol, methyl, etc., do not bite or chew, do not pound with pen or tool and do not punch a hole or slot in card. Card-bearers should never loan their card to anyone else and should always protect their card by placing in wallet or purse.
