Information for Departments

If you have new staff, faculty, visiting scholars or post-doc researchers that need a UCR ID Card, please follow this checklist below:

  • If the individual is on pay status, their PPS update information should have been completed 2 days prior to coming to the UCR Card Services office.  It takes 24-48 hours for the data to reach our ID Management System, giving us the ability to issue an R'Card.
  • If the individual is in a non-salaried position, please complete the "Request for a UCR ID for visiting and non-salaried positions" found under Visitor ID Request.  This is a way of introducing this individual to UCR Card Services.
  • If the department will be paying for the UCR ID Card for your staff, faculty or affiliate, please submit a web recharge to UCR Card Services indicating full name and Employee Identification Number if applicable.  A new card is $30 and a replacement card is also $30.  Please supply a copy of the web recharge to the individual to bring with them when requesting their R'Card.
  • Please instruct the individual that they must bring with them a valid government issued photo ID that meets our ID Requirements, as shown here.  

If you are interested in having UCR Card Services provide badges for your department, please see the information provided under "Staff Badge Request".

UCR's Hardware Recommendation for your Department

If your department is looking to purchase a magstripe reader that can be customized to work as a sign-in system to facilitate customer identification, student registration, and/or event participation, UCR's Information Technology Solutions (ITS) advises purchasing devices made by IDTech. IDTech's card readers have been tested and proven to work in UCR's environment and can be quickly implemented. IDTech devices are also reliable and priced competitively. For questions about renting a magstripe reader or having one programmed, please contact Card Services, (951)827-2273.
