Student ID Policies

ALL students (undergraduate and graduate) must be registered and have their fees assessed for the current semester prior to having their UGACard made.

The UGACard is non-transferable, and any student who uses the ID card of another person or who allows his or her card to be used by someone else is subject to disciplinary action. Upon request, the UGACard must be shown to University officials. Giving false or incomplete information on the ID request form by a student and/or witness is a violation of University policy and subject to disciplinary action.


Please check with your Department before coming to get your UGACard. They will tell you if you require a special type of card (a proximity card) for access control to buildings and labs. Your department will provide you with the necessary forms for you to get the correct type of card. Proximity cards are issued only with a signed authorization form from your department. Refunds/adjustments will not be given if you purchase the wrong type of card.


A University of Georgia student may purchase a dependent UGACard for their spouse and dependent children (under the age of twenty six) provided the student is enrolled at the time of the request, has paid all required fees, and can provide proof of marriage and / or proof that the dependents are being supported by the student. 

By paying additional fees, Dependents may be eligible for some services, such as Ramsey Center memberships, library privileges, and some services at the University Health Center. Student Dependents are NOT currently eligible to ride Athens Transit for free. Discounted UGA Athletics tickets are also not currently offered to Dependents, although they can be purchased at regular price if available.

Please contact the service provider directly for the most current information on Dependent eligibility.

Domestic Partners are eligible to receive a UGACard with access to certain UGA services. For more information on the Domestic Partnership Program, call Human Resources at (706) 542-2222 or click here.
