Obtaining an MIT ID Card
Proof of identity
To receive an MIT ID card, an individual must present a valid passport or a US government-issued ID, such as a driver's license. Driver's licenses from foreign countries, college / university IDs from other institutions, credit / bank cards or insurance cards will not be accepted as proof of identification.
Name changes must be initiated through HR or the Registrar's office. Once they have made the change, the individual may go to the Card Office for a new card. Please note: the individual must present a valid ID (as mentioned above) with the preferred name. Without a valid ID, the card office will be unable to issue the card with the new name.
All international students must go through an orientation at the International Student Office prior to getting an MIT ID. Orientations are held by appointment. To make an appointment, please call ext. 3-3795, or stop by 5-133.
