Once a student is admitted and enrolled at Colorado Mesa University, the student must obtain a MAVcard.

For students who are enrolled exclusively at the Montrose campus, may follow these steps to have their card delivered to the Montrose campus:

From your Colorado Mesa University email account, send an email with the following information to:

[email protected]

  1. Subject Line: Montrose MAVcard Request
  2. Your Full Name
  3. Your CMU ID (700#)
  4. Attach a scanned pdf or jpg copy of a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport.

Fill out the MAVcard application eform here:

And submit an approved photo through the MyPhoto system:

Please note that the MAVcard photo must meet very specific criteria to be approved.  The most commonly missed criteria are:

  1. Photos must be taken in front of a solid blue background.
  2. Your hair must be tucked behind your ears and behind your shoulders.
  3. No hats or other head coverings are permitted.
  4. You must remove your glasses.
  5. You must face directly into the camera without tilting or turning your head.

Additional guidance and requirements will be presented as you access the MyPhoto software.

Once your card is complete, the MAVcard office will mail the card to the administrative staff in the Branscome Center at the Montrose campus.

There is no charge for Montrose students to receive their first MAVcard.  Students may come directly to the University Center on the main campus to have their card printed in person instead of requesting it via email.
