A: The Card Office is using a phased approach to rolling out the 49er Mobile ID program. Each year, incoming students will be encouraged to adopt 49er Mobile ID instead of having a physical ID card printed. However, students, faculty and staff will not be required to adopt 49er Mobile ID and may continue using their physical ID cards.
All students, faculty and staff have the option to use 49er Mobile ID. However, the 49er Card Office is phasing in adoption over time and sending targeted communications to groups as support for 49er Mobile ID becomes available. Our goal is to provide the best individual customer service support experience possible as each group adopts 49er Mobile ID.
A: If you adopt 49er Mobile ID, your physical 49er Card will continue to function as it always has. You will be able to use both your phone and your physical card to access meal plans, spending accounts, buildings and more!
