Undergraduate Catalog 2016-2017


Identification Cards

The photo ID card is issued at the time the student first registers for classes. This card is to be used for the entire duration of enrollment. Additionally, students who have food service contracts will use this photo identification card to access these services. Contact Dining Services directly for further information.

The photo ID card can be used by students for admission to most athletic, social, and cultural events, to withdraw books from the libraries, and as a general form of identification on campus.

There is a $20 charge for a replacement ID card in cases where the card is lost, stolen, has intentional damage (e.g. holes punched in the card, snapped in two, etc.), or the cardholder wishes to retake their photo. The replacement fee is waived in cases where the replacement is due to normal wear and tear (i.e. the bar code is no longer visible or the magnetic strip is non-functioning). A replacement ID card can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar, First Floor, Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Building, Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm.

It is the responsibility of the cardholder to keep their ID card safe and secure and to deactivate a lost or stolen ID card. You should immediately deactivate your ID card ( https://id-card.umd.edu/lost/user ) to prevent use by unauthorized individuals. The University assumes no responsibility for misuse of your card, or for charges to your accounts due to your ID card being lost or stolen.

Once deactivated, you must obtain a new ID card at the Office of the Registrar, First Floor, Clarence Mitchell Building, Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm. The charge for a new ID card is $20. A deactivated ID card cannot be reactivated.
