Student ID Card

Mastodon Card

Official university IDs -- Mastodon Cards -- are issued free to new IPFW students. You must be currently enrolled and have a valid driver's license, state ID card, or similar photo identification. No current US driver's license or state-issued ID card? Alternative documentation (click on the Receiving Your Card tab) may be used. Visit or call 260-481-6611 for details. You must also know your IPFW student ID number (starts with 900).

Students are responsible for maintaining their Mastodon Card for the duration of their academic career.  However, a replacement fee of $20 applies to any replacement cards issued for the next 4-year period. A replacement card issued after the 4-year period is free of charge. The replacement fee is applicable whether your card is lost, stolen, or damaged.

Mastodon Cards are issued at the Walb Student Union service desk, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
