Valparaiso University OneCard ID’s are available for all members of the VU community including students, staff, faculty and alumni. In order to receive your Valparaiso University OneCard ID at the OneCard Office, you must have been assigned a VU ID number. You will need a valid photo ID (driver’s license, state ID, passport or visa) and you will also need your photograph taken. Individuals must be wearing normal street attire and uniforms should not be worn in photographs except for religious attire that is worn daily. Your photo should show a clear, full face, front view of yourself. Do not look down or to either side. Your photo should display your head, including both face and hair, from the crown of the head to the tip of the chin, and from hairline side-to-side. Head coverings are only acceptable due to religious beliefs, provided the head covering does not:
- Obscure a full front view of the face.
- Cast a shadow onto the face.
- Display any graphic design other than the overall pattern of the fabric or material.
A person wearing a traditional facemask or veil that does not permit adequate identification is not acceptable. Prescription glasses may be worn for the photo; however, there should be no reflections from the eyeglasses that obscure the eyes. Dark glasses or nonprescription glasses with tinted lenses are not acceptable unless they are needed for medical reasons. A medical certificate may be required. The key requirement for your VU OneCard ID is that the photo clearly identifies the cardholder. Your card is printed immediately and will be ready in a few minutes.
NOTE: Faculty/Staff must have authorization in the form of a Certification of Employment from Human Resources.
