Identification Card (OaKard)

When first enrolled at the university, students are issued photo identification cards at no cost. The ID card, OaKard, is the property of the university. Students who alter or intentionally mutilate a University ID card, who use the card of another, or who allow others to use their ID cards may be subject to university discipline. A $25 charge is assessed to replace a lost, stolen, or mutilated ID card. If a replacement card is issued, the original card is no longer valid and cannot be made valid.

An identification card may be obtained in Auxiliary Services, Room 113 of the Abrams Hall, during registration periods only after registration fees are paid. Identification cards may also be replaced during the semester in Auxiliary Services. If you are unable to come to campus, you may click here to “Request Oakard ID to be mailed”.

Card Usage

* If a student wants to put money in his/her OaKard account, a Value Added Kiosk is located in the Student Center, Library and in The Oaks Activity Center.
