The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Photo Identification Card is the approved identification for students, faculty, and staff and should be carried at all times while on the University premises. A validated card will be required to obtain services from University offices such as the Bursar, Morris University Center, Health Service, Lovejoy Library and others, and to gain access to University activities and facilities such as intercollegiate athletic events, campus programs, intramural and recreation activities, and the Student Fitness Center. In addition, University Police personnel and University Housing staff are authorized to request the photo I-D card in conjunction with the conduct of their duties when circumstances warrant identification. The photo I-D is nontransferable and void if altered. Use by any person of an altered card or use of a card with intent to defraud may constitute a violation of the Illinois Criminal Code. Each photo identification card is the property of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
The card must be presented by students to obtain textbooks from Textbook Rental. Under certain circumstances, additional identification (i.e., drivers license, receipts, etc.) may be required. Misuse, defacement or alteration constitutes an infraction of the Student Conduct and Student Grievances: Rights and Responsibilities Policy and provides grounds for separation from the University by suspension, dismissal, or expulsion.
The I-D can be used in accessing funds through voluntary debit accounts that can be used for laundry, vending, copy machines, parking, printing and bookstore, or any other services identified on campus. The minimum amount needed to open a debit account is $10.00. Should an account be inactive for at least 2 years, remaining funds will be forfeited.
Refunds on voluntary debit accounts will be made to students who have:
- withdrawn or graduated from SIUE
- entered the armed services for 6 months or longer.
No refunds will be given for any debit balance less than $5.00. No refunds will be given if there are outstanding debts to the University. The refund will go into the payment priority plan in paying outstanding accounts receivable.
Proper use of the card is a University policy and practice which University faculty and staff employees are expected to honor.
I-D cards are obtained from the Campus Service Center.
