ID OneCard

Your DePauw ID OneCard is used for a host of campus services:

DePauw ID card example

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


First card

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

Replacement cards

To request a replacement ID card, complete the DePauw ID Card Replacement Request form. After we process your request, you will receive an email confirmation that includes information on picking it up. Please note that once a replacement ID card is created, all previously issued cards are permanently deactivated.

Students are charged $25 for replacement ID cards. This fee is applied to their tuition account.

Faculty and staff members should contact the HelpDesk at (765) 658-4294 or HelpDesk@depauw.edu for information on receiving a replacement card.
