Your DePauw ID card is just as important as your driver's license, keys, or debit card. It has a chip, magnetic strip, and antennae embedded in it, so do not bend, crack, punch holes, add stickers, mark on, or alter it in any way.

DePauw students receive their first DePauw ID card at no charge, and you will keep it as long as you continue to be a student at DePauw. 

Replacement cards

Students are charged $20 for replacement ID cards, which is applied to his/her tuition account. Please note that once a replacement ID card is created, all previously issued cards are permanently deactivated.
