Chapter 7: University Student Identification Card
7.1 General Provisions
The University provides a University identification card (ID card) to each student for University identification and administrative purposes. The ID card remains the property of the University. Students are expected to have their ID cards in their possession at all times while on the campus and to maintain proper and reasonable care for the ID card. Students may be asked to produce the ID card and/or to identify themselves at any time by a faculty member or a University official acting in the course of his/her duties. A student’s failure or refusal to produce his/her ID card in response to such a request may result in denial of University services or activities to which the student is otherwise entitled, and/or disciplinary action. Only currently validated ID cards in good condition will be accepted for University purposes.
7.2 Use of ID Card
7.2.1 Issuance, Care, and Replacement
A University ID card is issued to each new student who enrolls at the University. It is the student's responsibility to claim his/her ID card within six (6) weeks from the initial enrollment. Students are expected to provide proper and reasonable care for the ID card and not subject the ID card to abuse or improper treatment, such as exposure to excessive heat or pressure. Students are responsible for replacing lost, altered, or damaged ID cards. An ID card is considered damaged when it has lost its shape or when the name, student number, or photo is unclear or illegible. Students that leave the University and return within five years are charged a replacement fee in order to receive a new ID card.
Only one ID card is permitted for each student. A student having more than one ID card must return the extra ID card(s) to the Miner Gold Card Office, with no refund. A student may not alter or change anything on the ID card without approval of the Office of the Registrar.
Only the student to whom the ID card is issued may use the ID card and the services and privileges to which the enrolled student is entitled. An ID card may not be loaned and used by anyone other than the student to whom the ID card is issued. Student disciplinary action may be imposed for violation of this policy, including but not limited to altering of the ID card, possession and use of more than one ID card, or use of the ID card by anyone other than the student to whom the ID card is issued.
