Rutgers visitors and other University guests who require a Rutgers ID card for use of authorized privileges must first be listed as a Guest in the University's Registry (database). ID Cards for visiting scholars are issued for a period of up to one year, after which they must be renewed by submitting an updated request form, turning in the expired card, and paying the associated fee.
To become a Guest in the University's Registry, your sponsoring department must submit a Guest Role/NetID request form.
