At Ball State University students, faculty, staff, other affiliates, and vendors that are frequently on campus are required to have a Cardinal Card. This card is used to access many important services such as building access, meal plans, athletic events, and much more. For these reasons we expect one will keep the Cardinal Card in good condition.
Your Cardinal Card is the official form of identification and lists your full name, your role (not your position), and your photo. You may only possess one valid Ball State Cardinal Card at any time. All students, faculty and staff will receive the first Cardinal Card at no charge. Vendors are required to pay a $10 fee to receive their card. Replacement Cardinal Cards are available for a $10 fee, and misuse of the Cardinal Card will result in a replacement cost to you.
If you lose your Cardinal Card, or the card becomes worn, cracked, demagnetized or mutilated, you may obtain a new Cardinal Card. You may utilize the steps above or come into the Registrar's Office in Lucina Hall, B42. All Ball State Cardinal Cards have a $10 replacement fee. Please note that the free for replacement cards will be increasing to $25 beginning the fall semester of 2016. You must pay this fee, prior to card creation, in one of three ways:
We will still require a valid photo ID when you pick up or when we mail your Cardinal Card to you. Mailing options available for Online & Distance students only and we will send your Cardinal Card to the mailing address you provided in your initial email.
