Getting your YU-card is quick and easy. After you enroll in courses, visit the YU-card Office to have your photo taken. You'll receive your card on the spot! To avoid long line-ups in September, have your photo taken during the summer after your Faculty advising appointment. *Please see exceptions below.
What do I need to bring?
- Your York U student number
- One piece of valid government-issued photo identification, such as:
- Driver’s license
- Citizenship cards
- BYID card
Schulich School of Business students do not have to have a photo taken at the YU-card Office. Your Faculty will provide the photo that is taken at your advising appointment and will issue your card when classes begin.
Please contact your Graduate Program Assistant for more information.
Students enrolled in on-campus courses or residing in the Greater Toronto Area are normally expected to visit the YU-card Office during business hours to obtain a card. Students who are enrolled in only Internet, correspondence, or off-campus courses; or graduate students residing outside of the Greater Toronto Area and enrolled in no on-campus courses; may request a YU-card by mail. The YU-card will not bear a photo and will require that you present valid photo ID should you wish to use the card. Requests should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. A valid student number and mailing address must be included in the request. Please allow up to 10 business days for your card to be produced and mailed.
