What is a JACard?

JAC stands for James Madison University Access Card.

Why do I need a JACard?

JAC is your official JMU identification card and your passport to most services on campus.

Where do I get my JACard?

The Card Services Office is located on the second floor of the Student Success Building (SSC).

What are the student requirements to obtain a JACard?

You must be registered for classes and have a government-issued picture ID, such as a current Driver's License, Military ID or Passport.

Do I need to replace my JACard every year?

  • No, your JACard is valid as long as you are a student at JMU.
  • We do replace lost, damaged or stolen cards, but there is a fee.
  • Normal wear and tear JACards are replaced free of charge (this is determined by management in Card Services).

How much does it cost to replace a lost or damaged card?

Lost or damaged card costs $20. Card Services determines charges for damaged cards.

Is there a charge if I want a new picture taken?

  • If you change your appearance - such as growing a beard - and we request that you have a new picture, there is no charge.
  • If you just don't like your picture, there is a fee of $10.

Where do I report my lost card?
