Baylor University's ID card is a single-card program that combines many features including identification, library privileges, building access, lab access, meal plans, selected student functions, football ticket distribution, debit card plus other activities.

A very important financial feature is our BearBucks™ program - a debit card feature. A deposit may be made in the Cashier's Office and a student can draw against that account at many locations both on and off campus. To access your BearBucks™ account online click here.

What is the ID Card number?

The Baylor ID card number is printed on the ID card. It is used as a unique identifier in University information systems of the person to whom the card was issued. The number has meaning only at Baylor University. Additional information (like a PIN) must be provided along with this number to gain access to protected data. Click here to get your Baylor ID card number by entering your bearid and password.

Security Issues

The ID Card system was developed with the purpose of providing you with an account and access security you need on campus. Each cardholder must help maintain the integrity of the system by immediately reporting lost cards and notifying the campus police or the ID office if they witness the propping of doors, abuse of card readers, or unauthorized use of a person's ID Card.

Lost Cards

Lost ID cards should be deactivated immediately by clicking here and entering your bearid and password. Or you may call the ID office during business hours at 710-1965. If your card is lost, damaged or does not perform needed functions as expected, it should be taken to the Cashier's office located in Robinson Tower. Replacement cards can be issued from the ID Office. There is a $15 fee to replace a lost or damaged card.

New Card Design

As of summer/fall 2012, the university transitioned to a new ID card for the campus community. It is not necessary for continuing students to have a new ID card made, but those who choose to do so will be charged the ID card replacement fee.
