Eligibility for a Stanford ID Card

ID card eligibility is established by Administrative Guide Memo 2.4.3. You will find a summary of the types of cards, the eligibility criteria, card fees, and the privileges granted by each card type. You can also download a chart that details the current policy [PDF].

Obtaining a Stanford ID Card

If you are a new undergraduate student, you can submit your photo online via the Approaching Stanford Forms.

New graduate students should upload their photo via the Photo Upload webpage.

If you are a new employees eligible for an ID card, you can have your photo taken and obtain your card at the ID Card Office at Tresidder Union, 2nd floor. Call 498-CARD (8-2273) first to make sure your personnel information is available (to ensure that all personnel information has been processed and a Stanford ID number assigned).

Change of status with the university

Students

Student ID cards are deactivated when you fail to enroll for any quarter other than summer quarter, or if you graduate. If you re-enroll at a later date, you can reactivate your card at the ID Card Office.

Staff, visiting scholars, and fellows

When your employment status changes to one which is no longer entitled to campus privileges, your card will not grant you access to university facilities and services. Your manager or HR officer collects your cards when your employment at Stanford ends, and must be surrendered to an appropriate university employee upon request.

Change of name

The name on your identification card must match the name in Stanford's official student or employment records. If your legal name changes, you must change your name in the official University records before you request a new ID card. Students can request this name change through the Student Services Center. Faculty and staff should request a name change through the Human Resources administrator.
