Card terms and conditions

ID card terms are presented in University policies as follows:

University ID card terms

I understand that:

  • A University ID card is University property, and I must return it to a campus ID Center when I leave the University or upon request.
  • A card is issued to help identify the valid cardholder and is to be presented upon request for securing privileges and services.
  • A card is valid only while I am a registered student, active employee or affiliate, or University retiree, or until that card is expired or revoked.
  • A card is non-transferable and does not obligate the University of Illinois in any way.
  • Altering or intentionally damaging an ID card, using another person's card, or letting another person use my card may result in disciplinary action and/or confiscation of the card.
  • Card data, including but not limited to the UIN, card number, and photo, may be used for University purposes.
  • If I link a card to my account with a University banking provider, I am releasing my UIN to that bank.
  • I am responsible for notifying a campus ID Center immediately if a card is lost or stolen. Also, if a lost or stolen card is linked to my bank account, I am responsible for notifying the bank.
  • If a card that is confiscated, surrendered, lost, stolen, or otherwise damaged has a balance on its value stripe, there is no guaranteed refund on that unused balance.
  • I am responsible for paying any replacement fee when an ID card is lost, stolen, confiscated, or intentionally damaged, or when any information is changed at my request.
