ID Cards Guidelines

All photos must be uploaded through the eAccounts website. Log in with your NetID and click “Profile”. Photos will not be taken in office. Please review the guidelines in eAccounts on submitting a good photo. Follow the same guidelines as you would for a driver’s license, state ID, or passport photo to increase the chances of the photo being approved. Smiles are encouraged!

New and Returning Students:

Please bring two forms of identification (one must be a photo ID) to have your identity confirmed.

If you are a resident student and need to quarantine upon arrival to campus: Please email cardservices@montclair.edu 2 business days prior to your Move in Date with the requested information below in order to have your ID card processed.
