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, and library card. It also acts as general identification for building security, sporting and entertainment event purchases and admittance, and picking up student payroll checks.

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

ID Photo Submission Guidelines

  • Face head directly at the camera (full face in view). Shoulders and clothing must be visible.
