Get Your Griz Card

New for Fall 2023

Starting in Fall 2023, all new incoming students will be issued a digital ("Mobile") credential as their first Griz Card identification. Physical Griz Cards will be provided as an alternative only when a mobile device is unavailable.  Only one form of Griz Card will work at a time. When you enroll in the Mobile Credential program, your traditional Griz Card will turn off

At this time, Mobile Credential is not available for Faculty or Staff.  If this applies to you, you will need to stop by the Griz Card Center to pick up a physical Griz Card.
