Kean University REQUIRES ALL active, registered students, faculty and staff to have an official Kean University Identification Card. Kean ID Cards provide access to campus buildings and classrooms, computer labs, the gymnasium and dormitories. The Kean ID card also serves as a form of identification for on-campus activities and University events. Students may also use Kean ID Cards for Meal Plans, Cougar Dollars, and Flex Plans, if applicable.
Kean ID Cards are obtained from the ID Card Office located in the Office of Student Accounting on the 3rd floor of the Administration Building. To receive your Kean ID, you must show a valid (legal) form of photo identification; for example, Driver’s License, State ID, Passport, Military/Dependent ID. There is no charge for the first card issued. If a card is lost, stolen or damaged, all are subject to a $15 replacement fee. Lost cards should be reported to Office of Student Accounting immediately. Payments are to be made at the Office of Student Accounting.
As part of the Campus Safety Checklist, all students taking classes on the Union campus must have a Kean University Student ID to maintain registration eligibility.
Each student is responsible for the security of his/her card. Kean ID Cards are non-transferable and students may not "lend out" their cards to others. Cards that are used by someone other than the cardholder will be confiscated and disciplinary action may be taken.
*NOTE* Students working on campus, who are not registered for current term classes, may have their Kean ID Card activated with their supervisor’s permission.
