  • Follow these Photo Specifications
  • Your physical government issued photo ID: U.S. driver's license, state ID, military ID or passport is required to pick up your Mcard.  A copy or picture of government ID is not valid.
  • Fall student Mcards will be available later in August.  (Due to Mcards being printed off campus, Mcards are not able to be retrieved early.)
    • New students living in UM Housing will receive their Mcards at move-in.
    • New fall students not living in UM Housing will be able to pick up their Mcards the last full two weeks of August at a campus card distribution event - details will be emailed to students later this summer.
