Obtaining ID Cards
UGA ID cards are used to identify you as an employee and, in the case of the College of Veterinary Medicine, to allow you to gain access to locked, key-carded facilities. The type of card Vet Med employees, students, and long-term visitors or contractors will need are called proximity cards, and they differ from "normal" UGA ID cards.
How to get your Vet Med ID card:
- Get the required pink form from the designated individual in your department to take to the Tate Center Card Office.
- Take the form to the Tate Center to have your picture taken and ID made. You will pay $25 at the Tate Center for your ID card. You may drive and park in the pay lot next to the Tate Center, or you can take the North/South bus that runs by the Tate Center.
- The day after you receive your card, your department’s designated individual should email the Business Office to have the correct access added to your card. It will not work until it is activated.
Please Note: If you have lost or broken your ID card and need a new one, you will have to go through steps 1 and 2. The day after you get your card, your access should roll over.
If you are going to have a visitor here for a month or more, the visitor will need to purchase a visitor's card from the Tate Center.
- A Visitor's Request form should be filled out and sent to the Tate Center Card Office at least 5 days prior to the visitor going to get their card.
- The visitor will need to get the required pink form from their department to take to the Tate Center Card Office. The visitor will be responsible for paying the cost of the card, $25, at the Tate Center.
- The day after the card is received, their departmental representative should email the Business Office to request access to be added to the visitor's card.
