This unified photo ID card serves as the primary form of identity verification throughout the university.


Important change to the process of issuing RUConnection Cards to New Employees:

Please be advised that due to new system requirements, all new employees must first be onboarded with an active appointment in HCM or Banner prior to being able to have a Rutgers ID card issued to them.
