Student ID Card

The student ID is more than your official Rhode Island College photo identification card. It is a great way to pay for everything including food, beverages, photocopies, laundry, printing, and textbooks at the Bookstore. You can add value to your campus points account at the Student ID office with a credit card. You can also add value using cash at either of the two Value Port stations; located at Adams Library behind the reference desk and at the lower entrance of Browne Hall. Your student ID accounts can be managed using GET Funds. Point your browser to https://get.cbord.com/ric and register your account. Additionally, your ID card has some important non-debit uses as well. It serves as your meal card when you sign up for a meal plan, your door key for entrance to your residence halls, your Adams Library card, and your ID for entrance into the Recreation Center.
The ID card consists of 3 accounts:

  1. The meal plan account for Donovan Dining Center and the café, (Board, Guest Passes, and Bonus Dollars).

  2. The Campus Points account for use at all locations where points are accepted (DDC, café, Bookstore, Student Union game room, many copiers, laundry facilities in the Residence Halls, and pay-for-print stations in the café and Adams Library).

  3. DDC commuter points (DDC points). This account is useful if you would like to designate funds for food only.

Your first ID card is free and can be obtained by coming to the Student ID office located on the second floor of the Student Union. Call 401.456.8394, email studentid@ric.edu, or visit www.ric.edu/student-ID for more information.
