Students are expected to have their Lander ID cards with them at all times.

Each student is issued an identification card (ID card) which is used throughout his or her time at Lander University. With the Lander ID card, the student has access to campus library privileges, athletic events, social events, student health services, and other university functions or services. Students are expected to show their Lander ID card upon request to faculty, staff or administration.

Students must have their ID cards validated each semester after paying tuition (including summer sessions, if enrolled during the summer).

The Lander ID card is non-transferable. Any student transferring or tampering with his or her ID card is subject to disciplinary actions, which could include suspension from Lander University. Tampering with an ID card includes changing any information on the card, as well as tampering with the validation sticker.

The first Lander ID card is free of charge. If the ID card is lost or stolen, the student must pay a $15 replacement fee and get a new ID card. Students must pay the $15 fee at the Business Office, located in the Carnell Learning Center, before coming to the Lander University Police Department for a replacement ID card.
