Requirement of USF ID

The ID center has not input or knowledge of reciprocity agreements between our library and other institutions around the area. 

It is the policy of the University of South Florida that all Students, Faculty, Administrative and Professional (A&P), University Support Personnel System (USPS) and OPS personnel must obtain and carry the USF ID card while on-site. Courtesy cards are available upon request to temporary USF employees, volunteers, and staff members of University-related entities. Retired USF employees are entitled to a retiree card.

The USFCard is used for identification, verification of University of South Florida (all campuses) status, use of USF services such as library services, healthcare services, door access, gym access, pool access, purchase of parking decals, obtaining passes for USF sporting and theatrical events, and other related events and services. The Online Learning and Instructional Technology Services department of the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library has been designated as the agency at the University of South Florida  St. Petersburg responsible for issuing USFCards.


Procedures for Obtaining a USFCard

USFCards may be obtained during posted hours at the Instructional Media Services and Distance Learning office located on the second floor of the Nelson Poynter Library.

  • Legal identification (passport, driver’s license, or State/Government Photo Identification card) must be presented to obtain an ID.
  • Student IDs require proof of current semester enrollment.
  • Faculty and staff IDs require a copy of their letter of employment.


Students will no longer have to pay for the ID card at the time of issue. Instead, students will be conveniently billed through their university account. The cost of the initial card is $10. Replacement cards will be charged $15.
