Benefits and Disclaimers of your Alumni Card

Register your card

Get an alumni card at EmoryCard Services on campus during regular business hours or request your card online. An alumni card and picture identification will serve as your ID for gaining access to the library and other alumni benefits. If you would like to use your card for access to campus libraries or to purchase a gym membership, your card must be activated at EmoryCard Services.


For security purposes, no facility building access is allowed to be placed on an alumni card. Only official Emory ID cards are to be used for University physical access.

Should an alumnus/a become an active student, employee, or sponsored affiliate of Emory University, the alumni card will be deactivated and an official Emory ID card will be issued based on the individual’s primary affiliation. At that time, the alumni card should be retained by the individual, but the official Emory ID card becomes the primary card.

Alumni cards are valid for 5 years from the date activated by EmoryCard Services. 

EmoryCard Services will no longer issue alumni IDs with photos and names.

Library Access

Visit Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library, Robert W. Woodruff Library, Pitts Theology Library, and Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library. Bring picture identification with your alumni card.
