RU ID Card Services for Faculty & Staff

New Employees

Your RU ID Card serves as your primary form of identification at the University. All newly hired Faculty/staff must submit a photo online for approval before a card is issued to you.   In order to receive an RU ID card, new faculty and staff members must have a completed employee record in the payroll system 3 business days prior to requesting an ID card.  Departments must complete a new employee's record prior to the employee's first day of work.  The ID card system relies on data from the payroll systems and automatic data feeds to populate the appropriate ID card data.  After you have activated your NetID and Rutgers email account, go to to easily submit the photo you would like included on your RU ID card. The photo will be reviewed and you will be notified via email.  The photo submission process must be completed at least 24 hour before the RU ID card will be available for pickup at your new student orientation session.
