All currently enrolled students are required to submit a photo online to acquire a OneCard ID. Prior to submitting your photo, please ensure that your preferred/proper name and permanent address are correct in MyNIU.
Damaged ID fee is $10 as long as you bring your current, broken OneCard ID and can be paid by cash, check, Huskie Bucks, or a charge to your student bursar account.
Lost ID fee is $20 and can be paid by cash, check, Huskie Bucks, or a charge to your student bursar account. If you have lost your OneCard, please report it.
If you have an old retired OneCard, you will be charged the lost ID fee. An old, retired ID will not be returned to you once the OneCard Office receives it for security purposes.
