Geneseo ID Card Services

At Geneseo, nothing will be as close to you as your Geneseo ID card. This card acts as your building access card, meal card, library card, and print card. It also acts as general identification for building security, sporting and entertainment event purchases and admittance, and picking up student payroll checks.

If you would like a preferred name to appear on your card, please refer to SUNY Geneseo's Preferred Name Process and complete the form prior to submitting your photo for the printing of your identification card.

Step One:

Start the process by completing the mandatory ID Card acknowledgement form.

Step Two: ID Photo Guidelines

  • Face head directly at the camera (full face in view). Shoulders and clothing must be visible.
  • Keep your facial expression neutral or smile naturally with both eyes open.
  • If you wear glasses, avoid any reflection and frames cannot obstruct your eyes.
  • Photo must be in color.
  • Photo must be taken within the last 6 months.
  • Use a neutral (plain white or off-white) solid background.
  • Caps, hats, and dark glasses are not acceptable; religious headwear must not cover face.
  • No headphones or wireless hands-free devices.
  • Choose a photo that you will want to have on your ID card for the next 4 years.
  • Obtaining a new ID within the 4-year period will incur a replacement fee.

Step Three:

You will be asked to show proof of who you are with a government issued identification that contains your full name and photo. The following are accepted:

  • Driver's license
  • Passport
  • Military ID

Lost or Stolen ID Cards

If your ID is ever lost or stolen, you should deactivate it immediately via Manage My ID Card for your protection. If your card is found before a new card is issued, you can reactivate your card by visiting our CAS Business Office at Blake-A 108. Your first ID card is free; if the card is ever lost, stolen, or damaged in any way that inhibits its proper use, you will be charged a replacement fee to obtain a new one.

Cards can be replaced at the CAS Business Office (Blake-A 108). Please bring government issued photo identification that contains your full name. The following are accepted:

  • Driver's license
  • Passport
  • Military ID
