Employee ID Cards

The AggieCard is an official employment ID card that identifies you as a UC ANR academic and UC Davis affiliate at UC Davis and other UC campuses.

An employee may visit the following link to receive an employee ID card. The link will provide you with instructions on how to submit a request for an employee ID card. Due to Covid-19 and depending upon the location of the academic they may want to request an employment card by email. Employee ID Cards are able to be sent to off-campus department locations and are sent directly to their supervisors. Currently we are not allowed to send ID cards to personal addresses as the UC Davis employee ID Card is a legal form of ID. Instructions can be found at the bottom of the web page.
