Students with ID Cards

BYU, it's time for a smarter ID card.

The ID card is getting an internal smartchip. The chip will become a free all-access UTA pass for eligible students, employees, spouses, and dependents beginning August 1.

The smartchip will also become a door access key for some campus buildings this year.

Find out when to come get your new, smarter, ID card.

Students, employees, and affiliates can get an ID card at BYU ID Center, 1057 WSC.  We will take your picture and print the card in our office – it only takes a few minutes.  Click here to see our business hours.

Employees can also get an ID card at the Benefits Office, D-240 ASB, M-F 8am-5pm.

Students taking classes at the Salt Lake Center can get a SLC ID card at the SL Center Library.  See the Library website for hours:


Getting your first ID or renewing an expiring ID?

New Students

  • 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.


Returning Students

  • Renew your ID card 1-4 months before it expires. If your card expires near the start of a semester, please wait at least 1 week after the semester start to renew.  We will renew expired IDs but NOT soon-to-expire IDs on move-in, NSO days, or the first day of classes.
  • Bring your expiring/expired card to the ID Center for a new ID card. 
  • If you do not bring in the expiring/expired card it is considered lost and 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

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!


Family and Friends

During New Student Orientation week, please wait for your student outside the ID Center.  Our office is small, and thousands of student visit during 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!
