Due to Covid-19, the Card Services office is open only by appointment. If you need to pick up your R'Card, or are having issues with your current card, please call (951) 827-2273 or email cardingoffice@ucr.edu.
The Card Office is located in the Highlander Service Center, which has moved adjacent to the UCR Bookstore.



As of June, 2020, to protect the health and safety of our campus community, all incoming students will be able to request their R'Card (student ID) online, and will receive their card in the mail, at the U.S. address on file with the university.

Step One:  Create Your Account

If you haven't already done so, create your online student account at myaccount.ucr.edu. You'll need to know your login info to submit your photo and proof of identity.  

Step Two:  Confirm Your Info

On the R'Web portal, go to Personal Information, then Addresses and Phone Numbers to confirm or update your permanent address; this is where your R'Card will be mailed as long as it is a U.S. based address. If you would like your R'Card mailed to a different address, please forward that information to cardingoffice@ucr.edu along with your student ID number after submitting your photo for approval. We do not mail R'Cards internationally.

Similarly, if you want to change how your name will appear — i.e., if you'd rather use your nickname — select the Preferred Name option. (If you DO change how your name is displayed, wait at least one day before moving on to Step Three.)

Step Three: Submit Your Photo and Proof of Identity

Log in to myphoto.ucr.edu with your NetID and password. Carefully follow the instructions on that page to submit both an approved photo and proof of identity (a government-issued ID). One photo submission per person.

NOTE: Card Services reserves the right to refuse any photos that do not meet our requirements.

You will be notified by email that your materials have been received, and again when your photo and ID have either been approved or rejected.

Step Four: Receive Your R'Card in the Mail

Your R'Card will be mailed to the address on file (see Step Two, above). A fee of $30 will appear on your student account roughly one month after your R'Card has been printed. Please review your account statements to ensure the fee is paid quickly.
