Appendix L: Student Identification Cards (Drake Card)

Appendix L: Student Identification (Drake Card/Mobile Drake ID Card)

Every student, when first enrolled at Drake University, is issued identification (Drake Card/Mobile Drake ID Card) bearing his or her photograph – a Drake ID can take the form of a mobile phone credential, a smart watch credential, or a physical card.  All of these forms of identification are accepted at all Drake locations, but none should be shared. This is permanent identification effective as long as the student is enrolled at Drake. The identification should be carried at all times. It serves as student access to many campus services, including library checkout privileges, computer labs, and recreation facilities. It is also an admission pass for Drake University athletic events and theater productions and as a means of identification.

The University's policy is to encourage students of all backgrounds to utilize its programs and facilities. This diversity enriches the academic experience of all. The University is committed to ensuring that each of its students is afforded equal consideration and opportunity. Accordingly, it is the policy of the University to be open to students without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. University policy does not authorize or tolerate checking identification solely on the basis of any of the above criteria. Requests for identification will be made as situations warrant to provide for the security of students and other constituents of the University.

The following regulations apply to the use of student identification:

  1. The identification must be carried at all times and presented at the request of a University official.
  2. The identification is not transferable and may not be used by any person other than the one to whom it was issued.
  3. A mobile credential can be added to ONE phone and ONE watch at a time.  Again, having multiple forms of identification does NOT allow for identification to be shared.
  4. A fee of $50.00 is charged for replacing a lost or mutilated card. Students should report to the Student Services Center to secure a replacement card, and payment will be accepted via debit or credit card.  Mobile identification does not cost anything, and will be encouraged when a physical ID card is lost.
  5. Forging or altering student identification is cause for disciplinary action.
