Alumni ID Cards
To receive your permanent Alumni ID, you must visit the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations in Hamilton Hall (320 S. Broad St., 1st floor, Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.). Please note that the Student Financial Services Office, which physically prints the Alumni ID cards, is observing summer hours and will only be open Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. through August. Alumni must come to campus to have their Alumni ID Card printed, as your identity must be verified. Your Alumni ID Card will grant you access to limited UArts facilities (Hamilton Hall to visit the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, Student Financial Services, and the University Library in Anderson Hall) and discounts available only to UArts graduates.
