Affiliates, Visiting Scholars and Non-Salaried Positions

If you are not a UCR student or employee, you still may be eligible to obtain an R'Card for campus identification purposes and/or to access university services:

Summer Academy and Summer Session students may visit the Card Services office to have their photo taken and R’Card issued in the week before their classes begin. There is a $15 fee. 

Visiting Scholars must be sponsored by a department to receive an R’Card (usually a signed form provided by your department). There is a $30 fee.

  • 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.

Parents of a child enrolled in Early Childhood Services (ECS) who are not otherwise affiliated with the university may obtain an “Access Card Authorization Form" from ECS staff. Bring the completed form to the Card Services office to have your photo taken and card issued. ECS staff will need to program the card before it will work. There is a $30 fee. 

REQUIREMENTS: To receive an R’Card, you must present a valid government photo ID (Driver’s License, Passport, etc.). Fees must be paid with a credit or debit card only; we do not accept cash, checks or American Express.
