Legacy UMDNJ faculty, staff, and students will receive Rutgers branded ID cards in phases. Phase 1 of the mass distribution was completed in February 2014. Any legacy UMDNJ faculty, staff, or student that did not receive their ID card during phase 1 will continue to use their existing UMDNJ ID card to access legacy UMDNJ buildings and services until further notice. Information regarding phase 2 of the Rutgers branded ID card distribution will be available and communicated at a later date.
