ID Policy and Procedures

Oswego State requires all students to procure and carry a valid identification card issued by Auxiliary Services.  There is no charge for the student's first card.  The ID card must be presented or surrendered upon request of an Oswego State Official, including residence hall staff, University Police, student affairs staff, and students authorized by Oswego State to supervise campus events, activities, and residence halls.

Entry to Oswego State-sponsored events or access to Oswego State facilities or services may be predicated, in part, upon presentation of a valid Oswego State ID card. All students using Dining Service meal plans will use their ID card as their meal card.  The ID card serves as a students library card and must be presented each time library materials are borrowed.  ID cards are also used for access campus services such as Health Center, Fitness Center, as well as opening e-mail accounts.

Alteration or falsification of data on Oswego State ID card, or creation and/or distribution of falsified ID cards are violations of the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct and may result in disciplinary action taken by Oswego State and/or confiscation of the ID card.  It is the responsibility of the student to replace Oswego State ID card if it is confiscated. 

It is the student's responsibility to replace the ID card if it is stolen, lost, bent, broken, or worn beyond the point of readability by Oswego State officials and/or readers used by Oswego State.  Replacement cards may be obtained at the ID and Dining Office, 503 Culkin Hall, in accordance with posted fees.
