The Griz Card is the official University of Montana identification card for students, faculty and staff. It provides easy access to University of Montana resources and packs a wealth of innovative technologies into one powerful and convenient card.
Temporary Cards are available for check out when a Griz Card is temporarily lost. Cardholders are allowed one free temporary card per semester, and the temporary card works for one week. By checking out a temporary card, your Griz Card functions will be transferred to the temporary card, and your real Griz Card will be deactivated until you return the temporary card. Photo ID is required to checkout a temporary card. If you were issued a Griz Card after August 2008, photo ID may not be necessary as we have your photo on file. Lost or mutilated temporary cards are subject to a $10 lost temp card fee.
Replacement Cards for permanently lost or stolen cards are available. By purchasing a replacement card, your lost or stolen card will be deactivated and all of the Griz Card functions (e.g. accounts, access, tickets) will be transferred to the new card. Photo ID is required, and there is a $10 replacement card fee. If you were issued a Griz Card after August 2008, photo ID may not be necessary as we have your photo on file.
Trade Cards are replacement cards for damaged cards. The cardholder must trade the old, worn out or damaged card to get a new card at the cost of $5. Photo ID is required. If you were issued a Griz Card after August 2008, photo ID may not be necessary as we have your photo on file.
University employees or representatives, and off-campus UMoney merchants have the right to judge whether damage to a card is at a point where it is invalid and will no longer be accepted. Please read the Damaged Griz Card Policy for more details.
Standard 2x2 inch photos issued by the Griz Card Center can be used for U.S. passports, visas, and applications.

Our office will print four copies of the photo for a cost of $10.
Headpieces can be included if worn daily for religious purposes; they should not obscure or cast shadows on the eyes or other parts of the face
