How to get a Student ID?

To Obtain a 49er Card:

We’re strongly encouraging students attending class at the Dubois Center to take advantage of the 49er Mobile ID Program.

In addition to serving as your identifying credentials and providing access to the Dubois Center uptown campus, your 49er Mobile ID gives you access to a number of university resources. You can find more information, including instructions on how to set up your 49er Mobile ID, at the link below.
