Visitor and other affiliate cards

ID Centers issue ID cards to visitors, extra help workers, OLLI Scholars, Research Park employees, and others. You can't request an ID card for yourself; your employer or sponsor must request one on your behalf. Fees may be assessed to issue some ID cards. Replacement fees are assessed; see Replace your card for more information.

ID Centers require a current proof of identity before issuing any ID. The full name shown on your proof of identity must match the name on your record in Banner. A new photo is required for every photo ID issued.

Visitor IDs

Visitor ID cards may be issued to short-term guests, community members with a paid campus recreation membership, and other persons with short-term, limited, and/or less formal affiliations.

Only a University of Illinois unit may request an ID card for a visitor; visitors cannot make that request for themselves. Contact an ID Center to learn more.

Extra Help IDs

Extra Help workers are not eligible for i‑cards. University units may request Extra Help IDs for workers who need an ID for door access or other on-the-job uses. Extra Help workers are not eligible for MTD bus privileges in Urbana-Champaign. Contact an ID Center for more information.

Other affiliate cards

OLLI Scholars, employees of University Related Organizations, and others may be eligible for an ID card. Contact your unit or an ID Center to find out more.
