Policy Title:         Photo Indentification Cards

Policy Number:   350-48

Policy Owner:     Associate Vice Chancellor of Auxiliary Services
Effective Date:    01/02/2018

Registered students, UC Riverside faculty and career staff may obtain a photo identification card for the computerized library checkout system from Media Resources. The card is used for identification and does not by itself verify ongoing status. Cards can be issued if verification of student status or employment status of faculty and staff is received from campus departments responsible for releasing that information. If the information in Media Resources does not confirm status, the person interested in obtaining a card will be asked to provide documentation. Examples of documentation can include a copy of a Personnel Action Form for confirming employment status or a receipt showing fee payment from the Cashier's Office for confirming student status.

Badges for identification and access are also able to be produced. Badges for access to the campus vivaria are issued only on written authorization from the Campus Veterinarian. Badges for emergency access are processed in cooperation with the Office of Environmental Health and Safety.

As a general rule, Media Resources offers this service Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The processing schedule for new students is published in each quarter's Schedule of Classes. Contact Media Resources for additional information.

Rates assessed for badges or cards are approved by the Recharge Committee. The 1993/94 approved rates are as follows: Badges or photo identification cards for faculty and staff are provided at $4.00 each. The original card for new undergraduate students is provided without charge. Cards for graduate students, or replacement due to name change, change of status, or readmission are provided at $4.00 each. The fee for replacement of lost or stolen cards is $10.00 each.
