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.
All sponsoring Departments should visit: https://requests.rutgers.edu/guest/guest.htm
Questions regarding the guest sponsorship process should be directed to the
OIT Help Desk as stated on the above webpage.
Once the Guest Role/NetID is established, the
individual can upload a photo online via the online submission portal:
The individual can then visit an ID Card Office to have a card issued to them. They must present the following:
1) Guest ID Request Form signed by their Dean Director or Unit Head (attached)
