What services can a Campus Visitor access with the UGACard?
Under certain circumstances, dependents of visitors and individuals with special affiliation with the University may also be eligible for a dependent UGACard. A dependent UGACard is issued to spouses and dependent children (under the age of twenty six) of a campus visitor. A UGA Dependent Request Form must be submitted to the UGACard Office five working days prior to having the ID card made. Request forms are available upon request from the UGACard Office as well as online. The University offers restricted privileges for visitor dependents with the UGACard.
Campus visitors may use the online form to apply for a for their dependents. This form, however, must be completed by the campus visitor and not the dependent.
Send form to UGACard Office, 309 Tate Student Center, Athens, GA 30602 or fax to 706-542-0070.
Individuals who participate in an authorized campus sponsored academic program for a defined period, generally one month to one academic term, may be eligible for a Program Participant ID card. Included in this category are individuals participating in grant sponsored programs, fellowships, research projects or programs, and internships. Generally these individuals are students from other institutions and are not enrolled as regular UGA students during their term here. These individuals may also be receiving compensation for their work.
Excluded in this category are summer camps and conference participants.
The cost of the Program Participant ID card is $15.00.
Affiliates for the University campus whose stay is for an extended but defined period of time, generally from one month to one year, and for a specific academic or administrative purpose, similar to work being performed by regular UGA faculty or staff, will be eligible for a UGA ID number in order to apply for on campus parking or other services that may require a UGA identification number. No ID card or badge is issued. Upon submission of the Affiliate ID number request form, the UGACard Office will issue the Affiliate a 16-digit UGA ID number that will be used for official University purposes.
Included in this category would be individuals whose work is based on campus but who are not part of the UGA master payroll/personnel data base. (Those excluded from this category would include students, conference participants, entertainers, law enforcement agencies, and most state and federal employees.) Individuals in this category are not eligible for other University services. Affiliates must be sponsored by an authorized University official or department. Affiliates must be renewed through the UGACard Office, if necessary, by their sponsor in order to retain eligibility for University services.
Affiliate UGA ID Numbers are issued at no charge to the applicant.
