Subject: [MASSMAIL] New Design for i-card

To:       University of Illinois Faculty, Staff, and Students
From:   i-card Programs Office
Subject: New Design of i-cards

Campus ID Centers started producing a new i-card design for incoming students, faculty, and staff on Monday, May 14, 2007.  The design changes, both aesthetic and functional, will better serve the needs of cardholders and card service providers.

i-cards with the current design are still valid. As each campus adopts the new i-card design, both current and new i-cards will be in circulation and both will continue to be accepted as valid for University services. Recarding efforts are being planned to meet the needs of each campus and will be communicated as they are finalized. i-card Programs will notify campus units before any i card design is officially retired and deactivated, which is not expected to occur before 2009.

Only i-card designs were changed. Visitor cards, special user cards, conference cards, departmental name badges, and other University of Illinois IDs are not changing.

 The i-card website ( contains a great deal of information about the new i card design, including frequently asked questions (FAQs), official press releases, and new card images.

If you need additional information about the new i-card designs, please contact your campus ID Center at 312-413-5940 or or the i-card Programs Office at 217 265-6464 or
