  • Recreation & Fitness Centers
  • Residence Hall Access
  • Attendance for Events & Activities
  • Universal Access to CDTA

To create your Sage ID card, you’ll need to submit an electronic photograph of yourself. By providing this photo, we will be able to have your Sage ID card ready for you when you get to campus. If your Sage ID card is lost or stolen, there is a $15 charge to replace it.

1.    No sunglasses or headcovers.*
2.    Must be a clear, forward-faced, color photo.
3.    The background should be of a solid, light color.
4.    The subject’s head and neck should be centered in the frame.
5.    The photo must be in .jpg format.
