Students and employees are encouraged to utilize a Mobile Drake ID.  Instructions on how to access the mobile credential are posted in the Knowledge Base.  If you feel that you cannot utilize a Mobile Drake ID, please contact Student Services to discuss options for another form of credential. Frequently Asked Questions about the Mobile Drake ID are posted here. 

You must have a photo loaded into the Drake system before you can load your Mobile Drake ID.  Feel free to submit your photo online!

If you had a physical Drake ID prior to mobile credential rollout, you may continue to use either/both ID cards.  If you choose to replace a lost physical Drake ID instead of moving to a mobile credential, replacement fees for lost cards are $50.  Please note that there may be a delay in receiving your card, as cards may need to be ordered from an external vendor. 

If you have any questions or concerns about card access or are having issues with your card, do not hesitate to contact us. ‌
