ID Card Services

All students residing on-campus or off-campus, including distance learning students, as well as all employees of the university and its on-site contractors, are required to obtain a Savannah State University ID card. ID cards cannot be mailed to students. They must be picked up in person only by the owner of that particular ID card.

To obtain the card, it is necessary to provide a legal picture ID (such as a military ID, state ID, driver's license, and/or passport). It is mandatory that the ID card be visibly displayed at all times while on campus. A student's card is valid for services each semester once the student has registered for classes.

The Savannah State ID card is not transferable. It is illegal to give your card to someone else. Only the first card is issued without a fee. Replacement ID cards cost $35 each and need to be paid for before receiving a new card.  In order to avoid confusion with your student account, do not pay through your PAWS. Payments can be made online through the Marketplace.

Lost cards must be reported immediately to Auxiliary Services to prevent unauthorized use of any meal plan used or funds placed on the card via flex funds. Please call (912) 358-3109 or email to report a lost card.

Thoroughly read the Cardholder Agreement, that you will sign when you receive your ID Card, for additional terms and conditions related to your card.

New Students

You will receive an email from Auxiliary Services, to your campus email, to sign the cardholder agreement and upload your photo for your ID. If you have not received an email, check your junk folder for any emails from the Auxiliary Services, then send us an email requesting an additional email. Ensure your email contains your legal first and last name, student ID number, and your campus email address and sent it to

Once you receive an email stating your photo has been approved, you may then pick up your ID. The ID card office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Hill Hall at the Tiger Central main desk. Please call (912) 358-3109 or email with any questions.

To receive an ID card, you must attend New Student Orientation or be registered for classes.

Where You Can Add Flex Funds on Your Card

You can add funds on your card by going to the PHIL, located just inside the front door of the King Frazier Student Center (to the left of the ATM), or in the Student Union behind the vending machine on the first floor across from the elevator. The PHIL will accept credit cards or cash. Information about terms and conditions related to card funds is located in the Cardholder Agreement that you will sign when you receive your SSU ID Card.
