All Rider University students are required to carry an official photo identification, and show it upon request of authorized personnel. Your photo identification may be displayed on either a physical ID card or the GET mobile application. This official ID photo will also be displayed in University systems such as Canvas.
What is my ID Card for?
The physical ID card or GET mobile app will be used to gain access to residence halls, dining facilities, student recreation center and other locations with restricted access. It is required for access to various campus events and University services including cashier’s and bursar’s offices and when checks are used at the University Store. You will need a physical ID card to access the library, print stations, and to pick up a package from mail services. The ID card is considered official ONLY when it is electronically validated for the current term. ID cards are never transferable. Fraudulent information or lending an ID card to anyone subjects the holder to disciplinary action. The ID card must be surrendered upon withdrawal from the University to the Dean of Students.
For more information about ID cards and the GET mobile app, visit the University ID Card page.
When do I get my ID card?
After submitting your picture online, you may visit the public safety office between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. seven days a week to secure a physical ID card. Residence Students will receive their ID cards during check in.
What if I lose my ID card?
The first time replacement charge for a lost or mutilated card is $30. After that, a new card costs $50.
