Old Dominion University Identification Card Program

General Policy

Old Dominion University's full-time faculty and their dependents, or an adult member residing in the household, are eligible for an Old Dominion University identification card. Part-time faculty and staff are eligible for a temporary ID card. University chaplains, Board of Visitors members, and persons assigned to Old Dominion University, but paid by other sources, are also eligible for an identification card.

           Monarch Plus Accounts are available with Debit Card capability to nearly all on-campus locations including Monarch Dining, the University Bookstore, vending services, Parking Services and the Ted Constant Convocation Center. Off-campus businesses also accept these accounts. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to open an account and support the campus and off-campus business partners.

Replacement Cards

There is a fee assessed to faculty and staff members and their dependents for replacing their cards when there is a change of name or when a card is lost or stolen.


The holder of a valid I.D. card is entitled to:

  • Purchase of a faculty/staff parking decal

  • Borrowing privileges from the University Library

  • Use of recreation facilities during appropriate hours

  • Free printed official transcripts

  • Reduced prices for Old Dominion University athletic events

  • 10 percent discount toward purchases at the University Bookstore

  • Reduced prices for performances of ODU Players

Security Purposes

Faculty/staff members and dependents should carry their I.D. cards while on campus. Campus police officers may request the card for identification purposes.

Surrendering Cards

Faculty and staff members who terminate employment with the university must surrender their cards and their dependents' cards during their exit interviews.
