Get Your Card

Once you have claimed your Duck ID (the first part of your UO email address before the @ sign), the next step to obtaining your initial UO ID card is to submit your photo. Please do this before you visit ID Card Services to have your card printed. If you need a replacement card and your UO ID photo is recent (less than two years old) you do not need to update your selfie, however you can if you would like to.

The ID Card Office is located on the ground floor of the EMU. When you come in to have your ID card printed, be sure to bring your UO ID number (95*) and government-issued photo identification (such as a valid driver license, state ID, military ID, or passport).

Please note: Your ID is valid for as long as you have an active relationship with the university. You do not need to renew your UO ID annually.

How to upload your photo:

All photos for university IDs and badges must be submitted through our online photo submission form.

  • Please review the photo requirements listed on the Submit Your Photo page.
  • Be sure to submit both your ID selfie as well as an image of government-issued photo identification.
