Campus ID

The Campus ID here at Colorado Mesa University is referred to as a MAVcard. The MAVcard office is located on the 1st floor of the University Center. At the MAVcard office students, staff, and faculty can use the office as a resource for all MAVcard questions and needs. 

The Colorado Mesa University MAVcard is the official student ID at Colorado Mesa University.Students need to be registered for classes in the current semester and present valid government issued photo identification in order to be eligible for a MAVcard. Faculty and Staff must present an official University check-in sheet and valid government issued photo identification to be issued a card.

Accepted types of identification include government issued passports, driver's license, state identification cards or a military ID. MAVcards will not be issued without proper identification and validation of the student being registered for classes (registration exceptions are made only during New Student Orientations).
