Penn State World Campus students are eligible to receive Penn State student identification cards, which can be used wherever student discounts are offered — bookstores, conferences, movie theaters, performing arts centers, etc. You must submit a request to receive your id+ card, and you can upload your own photo.
Obtaining Your Penn State id+ Card
There are two ways for Penn State World Campus students to obtain a Penn State id+ card — submitting your request online or visiting an id+ office in person.
id+ Card Photos
Penn State id+ cards typically include a student's photo (similar to a driver's license). Penn State World Campus students can upload a photo for their id+ card. A photo is not required for Penn State World Campus students, and Penn State id+ cards can be used for student discounts whether or not there is a photo on the card. Photos must meet our id+ card photo requirements.
Lost or Damaged id+ Cards
Lost, stolen, or damaged cards may be replaced for a $20 fee. You can request a replacement card online, and you may choose to keep your existing photo or upload a new photo for your replacement card.
To pay the $20 fee, you will need to deposit $20 into your LionCash account. Your LionCash account is an account tied to your id+ card, which you can use to pay this fee and for purchases from certain merchants. You can deposit money into your LionCash account using a debit or credit card — Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.
Once you have submitted the deposit and, if you wish to do so, uploaded your replacement photo online, please email the id+ card office at [email protected] to notify us of your replacement card request.
