Winter Semester Student Cards

It’s that time again! Remember that your student card is also your library card – it’s required to check items out from the library. If you are a new student, you don’t have to wait until January – avoid the new semester rush and bring your registration papers or photo ID to the Circulation Desk.

If you are a returning student with a valid student card (look for the new logo and expiration date or UPAS on the back), you do not need to come in for a new card. Forgot to get a student card for the Fall semester or returning after a break? Please bring your registration papers or photo ID to the Circulation Desk.
