The BYU ID card is your official university identification. It is used to open doors, access Cougar Cash, meal plans and other campus services. You can also use the BYU mobile app ID for many campus services.
Students and employees getting a first ID card, or replacing a card that is more than 2 years old, MUST submit a NEW selfie online before visiting the ID Center.
Photo submission is required for students and employees.
Submit a new photo online - click here.
New students - please submit your photo at least 3-5 weeks before the start of your first semester/term to ensure your ID card will be ready for the start of school.
New students moving into Helaman, Heritage, Wyview, or Riviera: PLEASE SUBMIT BY DEC 12. You can then pick up your ID card at the ID Center thru 10am Dec 20. After that, your card will be given to your housing area and you'll receive it at check-in.
Employee, retiree, spouse and dependent ID cards are available at the Benefits Office, D-240 ASB.
We support CES Honor Code Dress and Grooming Principles and Expectations. Students' and employees' dress and grooming should align with CES principles and meet expectations in the ID photo and in person. We don't like asking anyone to change and come back later - BUT WE WILL. Thank you for supporting Dress and Grooming with us!
Spouses and Dependents
Eligible spouses and dependents, please visit at least one week before or after the start of a new semester or term. The ID Center will be focused on getting ID cards to new students during this time and you may be asked to wait until all students have been helped. Employee spouses and dependents can also get an ID card at the Benefits Office, D-240 ASB.
Family and Friends accompanying Students
Please wait for your student outside the ID Center. We appreciate your help in keeping a clear path for students and practicing social distancing. Thank you!
