Manage Your BuckID : First Card
The BuckID office is located on the third floor of The Ohio Union in room 3040.
Our requirements for primary and secondary ID documents match those of the State of Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. These requirements are available online at the BMV web site.
Orientation students - You need to bring a photo ID (state-issued driver's license, state-issued ID card or passport) and your student profile. The student profile will be given to you when you check in for orientation. There is no charge for your first BuckID.
Faculty and Staff - First check with your department HR contact to make sure that you are entered into the university's HR system and that you have an employee ID number. Once that is in place, bring a photo ID (driver's license, state issued ID card,or passport) to the BuckID office. There is no charge for your first BuckID.
Students (not attending orientation) - You must be registered for at least one class during the current term to qualify for a student ID. Bring a photo ID (driver's license, state issued ID card or passport). There is no charge for your first BuckID.
Online students - You can access a Digital BuckID through the Ohio State App on iOS or Android mobile devices. You can find more informaiton on our Digital BuckID info page.
