Information on the discontinuation of Security ID (SID) Badges

General Information

Departmental ID Badges do not have expiration dates printed on them. It is up to departments to set an internal expiration date for the Department ID Badges if they would like to. However, we will not be able to print that date on the badges.

Departmental ID Badges hold no official authentication/credential power at the University.

It is up to each department to manage the Departmental ID Badges. We do not collect or ask for Departmental ID Badges to be returned to us.


Departmental ID Badges can only be ordered by University Departments by downloading and completing the Departmental Badge Request Form.

Please email [email protected] with your completed form and information indicating whether the ID badge holder or your department will be paying for the ID Badge/s.
