How to care for my ID


Take care of your ID/RaiderCard. It is your link to many accounts, on-campus events and services.

  • Protect by placing in a wallet, card protector or phonecard holder.*
  • Always know the location of your ID.
  • Report a lost ID (online or in our office) as soon as it is missing to protect your accounts.


  • Bending or scratching the card
  • Exposing card to high temperatures, such as direct sunlight or dryers
  • Placing on top of an embossed card in your wallet or purse. The magnetic stripe will be damaged.
  • Punching a hole in the card
  • Using your card as an ice scraper or use to pry open doors.

If your card is damaged in any of these ways, you will be charged a replacement fee.
