Replace your card

It costs $20 to replace an ID that is lost, stolen, or damaged. (Report a missing card immediately.) However, if your most recent card is expired, defective, worn, or outdated, you may trade it for a new one at no charge. ID Center staff determine whether a card is damaged, worn, or defective.

A new photo is taken for every new or replacement card.

There is no fee to replace a card as a result of a name change.

Most accounts and services—such as meal plans and door access—will work on your new card within a few hours.

Student i‑cards linked to PNC Bank accounts are relinked overnight. You can also relink your new card by using PNC's Online Banking or by visiting a nearby branch. Either method relinks your card in about 10 minutes.

Expiration notices

In the month that your University of Illinois ID expires, you may receive an email alerting you to replace it. If you have questions, contact an ID Center.
