Step 2: Submit a distance education campus card request

Important to note:

  • Distance education students are not eligible for the U-Pass as it is not included in your fees.
  • For security reasons, distance education cards that are mailed do not contain a photograph. The distance education card must be presented along with the government-issued photo ID to be valid.
  • If you are able to visit the Office of the Registrar in-person, you can obtain a Campus Card that includes your photo, or replace your distance education card at no cost (first-time only).
