Students with ID Cards

The BYU ID card is your official university identification. It is used to access your Cougar Cash and meal plan accounts. Your card is also used for door access and other campus services. Once you have your card, you can also use the BYU mobile app ID for many campus services as well.

New Students (getting 1st ID card!)

  • Students are eligible for an ID card one day after class registration.
  • Get your ID card BEFORE MOVE-IN & ORIENTATION WEEK to avoid lines.
  • Please bring:
    • A photo ID such as a driver's license or passport (required)
    • Your MyBYU NetID/username
  • We will take your picture; wear colorful clothing to stand out against our white backdrops.
  • Need your ID Number before getting your card?  Log in to MyBYU, go to Campus Links-Communication-Personal Information. Your ID Number is the 9 digit number on the left side of your screen.


Current/Returning Students

  • Please visit the ID Center before NSO week or after the first week of classes. If you need to replace a lost ID or expired ID and cannot visit before NSO or wait until after the first week of classes, please be aware that new students may be given priority.
  • Bring your card to the ID Center for a new ID card. 
  • If you do not bring your current card the new card will cost $10.
  • We will take a new ID picture; wear colorful clothing to stand out against the white background.


ALL Students and Employees

We support BYU Dress and Grooming Standards.  You must meet all D&G Standards to get a new card or have a lost card returned.  We don't like asking anyone to change and come back later - BUT WE WILL!  Thank you for supporting Dress and Grooming Standards with us!


Spouses and Dependents

Eligible spouses and dependents, please visit before orientation week or after the first week of classes. 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 new students in line 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

During New Student Orientation week, please wait for your student outside the ID Center.  Our office is small, and thousands of student visit NSO week. We appreciate your help in keeping a clear path for students. There are lounges to the east and west of the ID Center with comfortable seating. If you do visit the ID Center at another time, please remember we do not allow photos or video in the ID Center. Thank you!
