Who needs an i-card?
Active students, faculty, and staff who will be on a university campus this semester do. Having an i-card will simplify how you verify your identity for COVID-19 testing. You'll use your i-card to access library privileges, meal plans, door access, and other location-based card services.
Eligibility for all University of Illinois ID cards is assessed based on two factors: affiliation and need. The first factor is a populations' affiliation with the System and its permanency, formality, and privileges. The second factor is a groups' presence on campus, because physical ID cards and devices can only be used in person.
