Get Your DalCard


New Students

  • If you are registered for your courses, you can get your DalCard the week before classes begin.
  • You will need to show a piece of valid government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, or national identity card) when picking up your card.
  • Save time by submitting your photo online in advance (students starting in September only).

Returning Students

  • Renewal stickers and UPasses are available from any DalCard Office
  • Most students keep the same DalCard from the previous year. You only need a new DalCard this year if you have:
    • Lost your DalCard. A $15 replacement fee will apply.
    • Changed your level of study (e.g. from undergraduate to graduate) or changed campuses (e.g. from Halifax to the Agrictultural Campus).

Distance Education Students

  • If you are registered in a program that is delivered entirely by distance education, fill out this form and we will mail you your distance DalCard (without a photo) or your renewal sticker.

Faculty and Staff

  • Faculty and staff can get a DalCard from any of our offices once your employment documentation has been processed through Human Resources. Find out more.
