Student IDs

Obtaining Your Student ID

Student ID example image

Student IDs are available in the Mitchell building. To obtain an ID, you must be registered for classes and you must have proof of identity, such as a valid driver’s license or passport. If you have questions about the ID system, contact the Office of the Registrar at (301) 314-8240.

You may use your ID to withdraw books from libraries; ride the shuttle buses; and gain admission to most athletic, social, and cultural events. You may also use it as a prepaid debit card for UMD food establishments and printing services, and as a general form of identification on campus.

If you lose your card, there is a $20 charge for replacement. Be sure to deactivate your card if you suspect it has been stolen. Replacement ID cards can be obtained at the Office of the Registrar, First Floor, Mitchell Building, Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.
