All new, incoming students and faculty/staff are entitled to one University of Hawai‘i ID card at no charge.  Each type of ID card is specific to the individual’s association to the college or within the university system.  Any holds or financial obligations must be cleared before an ID card will be issued.  Once the application, appropriate documents and picture are received, a completed ID card will be available for pick-up approximately 48 hours (two business days) thereafter.

ID Card Validation

Student ID cards need to be “validated” each semester that the student is enrolled.  To obtain validation, students will need to pay their current semester tuition and fees in full, and have any obligations or holds cleared from their record.  Students who have signed up for the payment plan or who have been awarded and accepted financial aid, are eligible to get their IDs validated.  Printed documentation must be presented to the attendant (i.e. Registration Slip, Account Summary, receipt of payment or payment plan, and/or tuition deferment forms).   Students should work with the Financial Aid Office to monitor if tuition payments were made.  Check your MyUH Portal account status for payment status and information on holds.
