KEEP YOUR UAlbany ID CARD SAFE!

If you misplace, lose or believe your UAlbany ID Card has been stolen, you must deactivate it as soon as possible. The person to whom a UAlbany ID Card has been issued is responsible for keeping their card secure and is liable for all activity on the UAlbany ID Card until it is deactivated.

Your UAlbany ID Card gives you access to your residential housing and all your campus funds (i.e., meal plan, Discount Dollars, Munch Money, Podium, Campus Gold etc), so think of your card as if it is your 'house' key and credit card - combined!

For your protection and safety, your UAlbany ID Card can be used by only you. Cashiers who accept UAlbany ID Cards as a form of payment will verify that the card belongs to the person making the purchase and will not accept a UAlbany ID Card as a form of payment if the photo on the card does not match the person using the card. Additionally, cashiers may require a second form of photo identification for purchases made with a UAlbany ID Card or credit card.

Purchases made with your UAlbany ID Card that exceed $25 will require a second form of picture identification.

Refunds are not provided for money or meals fraudulently spent on a UAlbany ID Card.

Any department or organization that accepts your UAlbany ID Card as a form of payment, verification, or access to events or services has the right to confiscate your card if the card does not belong to the person using the card. Confiscated cards will not be returned to the original card holder.  Anyone involved in the fraudulent use of a UAlbany ID Card is subject to card replacement costs, and may be subject to conduct review and University policies.
