a female student gets her new eagle card

The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University EagleCard is much more than just a student ID card. The EagleCard is an access key, a campus debit card, a library card, and can be used for purchases at select off-campus merchants.

The EagleCard is also available to employees, vendors, and visitors. Employees may obtain their card through the EagleCard office. Vendors and visitors must be accompanied by a representative from the sponsoring University department. Alumni can receive the “Forever an Eagle” alumni ID card through the Alumni Office.

The EagleCard is issued free of charge to new students during Orientation. Your EagleCard will serve as student identification for admission to school activities, events, games, or when seeking services from a University department.

New students should request their EagleCard before arrival on campus! Don’t spend time waiting in line, request yours online! Plus, flight students who request their EagleCard before arrival will also have their flight badge prepared ahead of time. Incoming students will be able to request their EagleCard after the tuition deposit has been paid and according to the following dates, as well as by invitation during some special events:

  • Fall semester starts: May 1
  • Spring semester starts: November 1
  • Summer semester starts: April 1

If you reside in University housing, your EagleCard is an access key for entry to the residence halls, as well as for some labs and buildings on campus.
