New AggieCard FAQs

Why do some students have an AggieCard with a new design?

New students for 2022-23 are receiving the new AggieCard. Students who lose an old card will receive a replacement with the new design. A $15 replacement fee is required. If students want to replace their original photo they may upload a new photo to the AggiePhoto Upload Tool.

Why the new design?

In 2020, UC Davis launched a new brand. This year, the AggieCard has been redesigned to incorporate the new branding elements. For more information see the  UC Davis spirit marks web page.
