The University Card
About the University ID Card
While each institution has its on card, you will only need one card throughout the Columbia community as one card can have multiple affiliations listed on the back of the card. The card face type is dependent on a predetermined hierarchy. The front of the card will also have an expiration date. Prior to the expiration date, cardholders are encouraged to visit the appropriate ID Card Office for a replacement.
On the back of the card, cardholders will see the various affiliations he/she has as well as a Unique Card Number (UCN). The UCN is only used to link the “active” card to an individual.
