Identification cards will be issued to all regular employees at time of hire. Identification cards may also be issued to the spouse, domestic partner, and eligible dependents of regular employees.

Employees and dependents with an appropriate identification card, will be permitted to use the College facilities (e.g. Dow Fitness Center, Library) at times designated for such purposes and attend most special and sports events, although some may have an admission charge.

Replacement identification cards may be obtained through the Information Technology Help Desk located on the ground floor of Ferguson Building (Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM). Employee identification cards may be exchanged at no charge as needed.

The use of an identification card that belongs to someone else for unauthorized access or admittance is prohibited. Doing so may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination

Identification cards are valid only during the term of an individual’s employment with the College. Exception is granted for Emeriti faculty and staff and their spouse/significant other and eligible dependents. Spouse/ Dependent identification cards must be turned in to Human Resources at the time the spouse/dependent no longer needs the card or can no longer be claimed as a deduction on the eligible staff member’s income tax return.
