Get an i-card
The i-card is the official University of Illinois identification card. Students, faculty, staff, and retirees are all eligible to receive one. Other cards or badges are commonly available for visitors, Extra Help workers, and others, provided a University unit requests it and confirms the need.
Your first i-card is free. You may also trade in a defective or worn card for a new one for free. However, replacements for lost, stolen, or damaged cards cost $20.
Students enrolled in online programs may be eligible for an i-card. Contact your campus ID Center to learn more.
