Changes to status or name - leaving the university?

Name Changes or Incorrect Names

Students - Incorrect or changed names require cardholders to provide proof (driver's license, marriage license, etc.) to the Registrar's Office. About 30 minutes after that office makes the necessary changes, cardholders can generally take their old Mcards to an ID Issuing Station to obtain new corrected Mcards. Also see Preferred Name.

Employees - Incorrect or changed names require cardholders to provide proof (driver's license, marriage license, etc.) and complete Human Resources form. About 30 minutes after that office makes the necessary changes, cardholders can generally take their old Mcards to an ID Issuing Station to obtain new corrected Mcards. A call to the Mcard Center 734 936-2273 can verify if the change has occurred. Also see Preferred Name.

Having Multiple University Affiliations

Students who gain employment or volunteer at the University have the option to turn in their student Mcards to an ID Issuing Station (Michigan Medicine Mcards only issued at the Key & ID Office) and obtain Mcards which have their department listed on the obverse and the word "STUDENT" printed on the reverse above the black magnetic stripe.

Employees who also become University students have the option to turn in their Mcards to an ID Issuing Station (Michigan Medicine Mcards only issued at the Key & ID Office) and obtain Mcards which have their department listed on the obverse and the word "STUDENT" printed on the reverse above the black magnetic stripe.

Employees who have multiple appointments can only have one appointing department name printed on their Mcards. 

Employees who change departments can bring completed Mcard Request and Change forms and their old Mcards to an ID Issuing Station (Michigan Medicine Mcards only issued at the Key & ID Office) for their new Mcards. Employee Mcards are valid up to 5 years from the date of issuance. 

Expired Mcards

All expired Mcards are required to be turned in to an ID Issuing Station in order to receive new Mcards for at no charge.  Non-employee/student expired Mcards also must be turned in to avoid the $20 replacement fee; new non-employee/student Mcard fees apply.

Temporary Absence From the University  

Students who experience a break in their academic career (e.g., a term or year off) should retain their Mcards until their return unless the University specifically requires its return.  Student Mcards are valid for 5 years from the date of issuance. 

Permanently Leaving the University

Cardholders who will no longer be affiliated with the University are required to turn in their Mcards to an ID Issuing Station or, if employed, to department/unit management. Management should forward these Mcards to the Mcard Center for confidential destruction.
