How to Get a Card

Simply stop by the Mav Express office during our office hours, no appointment is needed and it only takes a few minutes.  All persons seeking a Mav Express card must present valid government issued photo identification (passport, driver's license, etc).

A student must be registered for classes at least one working day prior to receiving a Mav Express card. New students participating in an official University Freshmen or Transfer Orientation program may receive their ID as part of that program.

Replacement cards will be provided during normal operating hours. For lost or stolen IDs, a replacement fee of $15.00 will be charged at the time the ID is issued. The replacement of damaged IDs will be offered free of charge as long as the damaged ID is returned at the time the new ID is issued.

Distance ID Cards are available when required by your department\course. Please see for more information.
