How do I get my Penn State id+ Card?
Penn State Scranton students can get their Penn State id+ card by booking an appointment online or by calling 570-963-2551 to make arrangements for ID card pickup.
The first id+ card received is issued at no charge. You will need to present valid identification: such as a driver's license, passport, or military ID - in order to receive your id+ card.
What if I lose or damage my card? What if my name changes?
We can issue you a new id+ card at the current replacement fee. The filing of a police report does not waive the replacement fee of a stolen card. Only the latest card printed is valid. Please come to Dawson 117 with another form of photo identification to obtain a new card.
Replacement of a card when there is a change in the cardholder status or name is free; however, the old card must be presented in exchange.
