Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions and answers about your DePauw ID card.
No. You keep your DePauw ID card as long as you continue to be a student at DePauw University.
Because of the privileges associated with your DePauw ID card, it is imperative that you report a lost card immediately by calling the HelpDesk at (765) 658-4294. If you lose your ID card after 5 p.m. or on weekends, you may obtain a temporary door access card from the Office of Public Safety at which time your card will be flagged as “Lost”. This will prevent unauthorized charges to your account. You can also report your ID card lost online by logging in at GET.
Contact the HelpDesk or Public Safety to have your card flagged as “Found”, which will make it available for use immediately unless you already received a replacement card. You can also report your ID card found online by logging in at GET.
Replacement ID's are available from the HelpDesk, which is located on the lower level of the Union Building, Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
The cost to replace a student ID card is $20, which is applied to your tuition account.
