The UGACard is the official University of Georgia identification card for students, faculty, staff, official campus visitors, and their dependents.
Your UGACard will have your 16-digit identification number placed in three locations: numerically printed on the back of the card, encoded into a barcode on the back of the card, and encoded onto the magnetic stripe.
The first 6 digits are your Bulldog Bucks account PIN. The next set of 9 digits is your “UGAID” (which replaces your Social Security number). The last digit is your “Issue Level”, which represents the number of replacement card that you have been issued. Your first card is always a zero.
In the event that you must replace a lost or stolen UGACard, your new card will have a new randomly-assigned Bulldog Bucks PIN and your “Issue Level” will increase by one. Your 9-digit UGAID will not change.
Some services on campus allow you to type in your UGAID number instead of swiping your UGACard. You must also type in your 10-digit number, beginning with your UGAID and ending with your current Issue Level.
You will not need to memorize your Bulldog Bucks PIN, as you must physically swipe your card when making a purchase.
