What is Mobile ID?

Mobile ID is an app available on Apple and Android devices that will allow students entry into labs, classrooms and other non-residential spaces that they have approved access to and that have been labeled for Mobile ID. The app will also enable students to pay for vending, laundry and meals at some locations across campus from their phone. This new functionality will make accessing campus services more convenient.

While Mobile ID offers added convenience, it is not meant to replace JACards. It is very important that students continue to carry their JACards as there are still areas on campus unable to accept Mobile ID. It is also important to note that in the interest of public safety, Mobile ID will not allow students entry into residence halls. The use of a JACard is still required to access those spaces. As with your JACard it is against University policy to share Mobile ID with another person.  Mobile ID is for personal use only and should never be used on a device that does not belong to you.

Please note: There is a $20.00 fee to re-authorize prior to 30 days effective July 1, 2018
