AggieCard Photo Upload Information & Requirements

The UC Davis AggieCard is the university's official identification card and it is used to confirm your student status. This photo will also be used to identify you through many online tools to include Photo Rosters for professors and the online advising tool. The first AggieCard is issued without charge to new students for each degree program they enter (e.g. undergraduate, graduate, professional school). The replacement fee for a preferred name or other name change, lost/stolen or damaged card is $15.00.

New undergraduate students entering fall quarter will need their AggieCard during Orientation, Summer Start or STEP. By using the photo upload tool, the AggieCard can be produced in advance and it will be distributed to new undergraduate students during Orientation, Summer Start, or STEP check-in. 

New graduate students can also upload their photo and will pick up their AggieCard during the summer at their convenience at the AggieCard Office.

If you are not a new undergraduate or graduate level student for fall quarter, you will not have the option to use the photo upload and you should visit the AggieCard Office in 253 Memorial Union to take your photo and receive your AggieCard.
