University of Iowa students, faculty and staff are eligible to receive an Iowa One Card. There is no charge for the first card.
All individuals must present a valid, approved form of government issued photo ID to receive their card. We will not accept photocopies or a photo of an ID on a mobile device. All forms of ID must be the original document.
New undergraduate students will have the opportunity to upload a preferred photo for their Iowa One Card prior to attending orientation. Instructions for when and where to pick up their card will be given at orientation check in. Cards will not be released to anyone but the student named and pictured on the card.
Update June 2020 - Due to the cancellation of on campus orientation programs this summer, we will be offering to mail Iowa One Cards to students who meet with our staff virtually for identity verification purposes. Instructions for scheduling a Zoom video conference will be provided via email when the uploaded photo is accepted.
New faculty and staff are eligible to receive an Iowa One Card when their appointment has completed routing in Workflow. This may take at least one business day due to the timing of system updates and the effective date of the appointment. If there are any questions regarding the eligibility of a new faculty/staff member, please contact one of our office locations. Individuals with a complementary appointment are eligible for an Iowa One Card with Affiliate printed as the role identifier.
