Replace your card

Replacement cards may be subject to a $20 fee. If your card is lost, stolen, hole-punched, altered, or damaged, the fee will apply—even if the card is expired. Defective, worn, outdated, and unaltered expired cards may be traded at no charge. There is also no charge to replace a card as a result of a name change.

Important notes

  • ID Center staff determine whether a card is damaged, worn, altered, or defective.
  • Report a missing card immediately.
  • A new photo is taken for every new or replacement card.
  • 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.
