Digital BuckID

All currently enrolled students and active employees can access a digital version of their BuckID in the Ohio State App on iOS and Android devices. You must be signed in through the "About You" section of the app for the digital BuckID to be available.

You can use the digital BuckID for situations where an ID must be shown to confirm your identity and/or your student or employee status (i.e. receiving a student discount or showing a BuckID before completing a proctored exam).

The digital BuckID cannot be used for any transactions or activities that require the card to be swiped. This means it cannot be used for access, purchases or card-based attendance. Customers must obtain and utilize a physical BuckID to complete transactions.
