Each undergraduate and graduate student of Academy of Art University is issued a Student Identification (ID) Card. Your ID card serves as proof of status with Academy of Art University and provides access to many resources provided by the university such as dining hall meals, access to buildings and residence halls, use of the libraries and athletic facilities, and a debit program for certain purchases.
All students must maintain and carry a current ID card for the entire period that they are affiliated with the university. You are responsible for the care and safekeeping of the ID card, and it should be protected and carried at all times. Protecting the ID card reduces the risk of abuse related to privileges and funds associated with the ID card and extends the life of the card. Holes should not be punched in the ID card and the use of stickers, pins, or other items affixed to the ID card is prohibited. No one other than the student to whom the card is issued is to use the ID card, and the card is the property of Academy of Art University and must be presented upon the request of an appropriate university official and may be revoked at any time by the University.
1. Obtaining the Student ID Card
The initial Student ID card is issued without charge and may be obtained from the AAU Campus Safety Command Center at 180 New Montgomery Room B-83.
2. Reporting a lost or stolen card
If you've lost your ID card, please report it as soon as possible. Placing a card on "lost" status protects you by de-activating the associated ID card privileges and funds. Report a stolen card to Academy of Art University Campus Safety Department either in person at 180 New Montgomery Street B-83 during normal building hours or by calling 1-415-618-3911 at any time. Once the card is reported as lost, it cannot be used by anyone until it is re-activated or is replaced by a newly printed card.
3. Replacing a Missing or Damaged ID Card
You can get a replacement ID card from the AAU Comm Center at 180 New Montgomery Street B-83 during normal building hours.
The process of obtaining a new ID card will include disabling other card(s) which you may have been issued.
If the most recently issued ID card becomes unusable due to normal wear and tear, it will be replaced at no charge.
If an ID card is stolen along with other valuables, it will be replaced at no charge with an accompanying police report from a valid police agency.
If for any other reason an ID card needs to be replaced, there is a $30.00 non-refundable ID card replacement fee, and can be obtained by either or the two methods listed below.
- Visiting the Accounts Receivable Dept. at 150 Hayes (4th floor) and pay the fee in person with cash, check, or credit card.
- Calling the Accounts Receivable Dept. at 415-618-6429, and pay the fee with a credit card.
Please present the email verification or hard copy receipt to the AAU Communication Center agent who will then process the new ID card.
