OSU ID Card Provides Access

All OSU students may obtain a student identification card.

Corvallis Campus Students:
Corvallis campus studentsn must visit the the ID Center in Kerr Administration Building, B094, after registering for classes at OSU. Photo identification is required (state issued driver's license or ID, passport, or military ID). The OSU ID card is your official identification for using campus services, facilities (door access) and activities, and is valid as long as you are registered for classes. It is scanned at many locations to verify registration. Your OSU ID card is your meal card if you live in university housing.

MyCard is the online card office where students can submit a digital photo of themselves for their initial ID card, view their OSU ID card balance and past card transactions, add money to their OSU Card Cash or Orange Rewards account, set up "Donors" (contributors other than themselves), and deactivate or reactivate their lost OSU ID card. OSU Card Cash and Orange Rewards is the campus debit account used with your ID card for copies at the library and purchasing food on campus. Card Cash and Orange Rewards are separate from your resident hall meal plan. You can add money to your OSU Card Cash or Orange Rewards at the ID Center or online at http://mycard.oregonstate.edu/. See this website for more information on Orange Rewards, a discount debit plan.

Ecampus Students:
Students who are studying off campus may obtain their ID card as long as they are registered with OSU. They may request a non-photo ID card to be mailed to them by calling or emailing the ID Center anytime after they have registered for classes, 541-737-2493, ID.Center@oregonstate.edu.

OSU Student ID card fees are as follows:

  • Student (original card, billed with tuition) $20.
  • Card replacements $25.
  • Affiliate (Spouse or Domestic Partner of a student) $20.

Students may change their current mailing address listing at the Registrar’s Office or by logging in to MyOSU, https://myosu.oregonstate.edu/, and under Update Personal Profile clicking on 'Update Address or Phone Number'.

You will be asked to verify your address at the beginning of each term. The first time you access your student information on the Web through MyOSU, you will see a message asking you to change or confirm your address. Please update your address information at that time.

Forms submitted to the Registrar’s Office are sent to the National Student Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse will provide a certification report that comes closest to providing the information you desire. They will not complete your form. All such certifications are official and need no further institutional signatures or seals.

Only those certification requests that require information not in the possession of the National Student Clearinghouse will be handled by the Registrar’s Office. In many cases, an official transcript will meet the needs of your request. We are unable to complete agency forms.

To learn more about the National Student Clearinghouse, visit their website at http://www.studentclearinghouse.org/ or contact them at 2300 Dulles Station Blvd., Suite 300, Herndon, VA 20171. Telephone: 703-742-4200 (8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST), FAX 703-742-4239, or email: service@studentclearinghouse.org.

Loan companies, other agencies, and even parents can contact the NSC directly for enrollment verifications.

OSU Alert Notification System

The Alert website (http://oregonstate.edu/main/alerts) keeps the OSU community apprised of emergency situations related to campus and serves as an entry point to the OSU Alert Notification System. You can use the portal link on this page to provide emergency contact information in order to receive proactive notifications in the event of an emergency and you can visit this website to get regular updates. This system allows public safety officials to create emergency alerts that contain a recorded voice message, an email message, and a text message and send them to the current database of contact information for all employees and students. In crisis situations, the system will try all means of contacting each person in the database, and uses sophisticated means to verify contact so that we know we have reached everyone we could.
