About Your Card

UWGB Students, faculty, and staff will be issued a University ID card as part of their ongoing relationship with the university.  The University ID card is the official UW-Green Bay ID and should be carried with you or be readily available to you while on the UW-Green Bay campus. You will be asked to present your University ID to access select buildings and classrooms on campus, to access your University accounts, and to gain campus services.

  • Newly admitted students may obtain their initial University ID card for a $7.50 fee. However, all incoming freshman students will have their $7.50 fee built into the FOCUS fee and will not be required to pay the initial ID fee when attending the Resources & Registration program in June.
  • UWGB faculty and staff can obtain their ID card at no cost, as part of their employment identification.
  • Please note you must present valid photo identification when receiving a University ID. Your University ID card will be valid throughout your entire academic or employment career at UW-Green Bay.  You will also be signing an ID card holder's rights and responsibilities agreement.
  • Your Student ID Card will display your preferred name on the front of the card, and your legal name on the backside.  The legal name is needed to meet the requirements for a Voter Photo ID.  Please click here for more information regarding Voter ID policies and here for more information on UW-Green Bay Legal or Preferred Identity Practices.

Be prepared to take a photo for your Student ID.

This will be your main form of identification on campus and you will use your Student ID daily. We want YOU to look good, so here’s some tips:

1.      You don’t have to dress fancy; your normal clothes will be just fine.
2.      Your face needs to be clearly visible in the photo, and cannot be covered.  Remove wireless devices and headphones. 
3.      No hats, bandanas, or other headwear should be worn with exception to any religious clothing that is worn daily, including headpieces.
4.      Uniforms should not be worn in the photo with exception to law enforcement, military personnel, and University Dining Services.
5.      Prescription glasses are allowed, but the lenses cannot be darkened or create a glare in the picture.
6.      Please keep your hands away from your face and out of the view of the camera.
7.      Smile big!
