Student Identification



Student ID card


The WKU ID Card is the official ID card of all Western Kentucky University students as well as faculty and staff.
Each card includes the person's photo, name, ID#, and status with the University (such as "student", "faculty/staff").

This card is required for many activities on the WKU Owensboro campus and on the WKU main campus in Bowling Green.
These activities include but are not limited to:

•Checking out library materials

•Discounts and/or tickets for athletic events

•Purchasing WKU parking permits

•Preston Activities Center

•Taking a proctored test

•As well as other discounts at area merchants

As you can see, if you are going to do just about anything on campus, you will probably need the WKU ID Card!

How do you get a WKU ID Card?

If you are a registered student, Joint Admissions student at WKU Owensboro, or employed by WKU Owensboro, contact:

Another great thing about the WKU ID Card - your initial card is absolutely free! This card is meant to last for your
whole campus career, but if your card is lost or stolen, you may purchase a replacement for $20.
