What is my UGA ID Number?

Your UGA OneCard will have your 16-digit identification card number encrypted on the embedded chip.

Your 9 digit “UGAID” (which replaces your Social Security number) will be printed on the back of the card, followed by the last digit, your “Issue Level”. This 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 UGA OneCard, your “Issue Level” will increase by one. Your 9-digit UGAID will not change.

Biometric Iris Image

After your UGA OneCard is printed, an ID Technician will photograph your eyes to create a biometric iris image to be used for accessing the Dining halls and the Ramsey Physical Fitness Center.

In the event that your iris image gives you difficulty, please return to the UGA OneCard Office with your ID card so that we can re-enroll your eye image.
