Student ID

Overview

Your  Catamount Card is the Keyser campus version of the Mountaineer Card. This versatile card is not only an identification card, but also acts as a meal card, debit card, access card and key card. It is important to carry your ID card with you at all times. 

Note: Your first Catamount ID Card is free.

Submit Your Own Catamount ID Card Photo

Students and employees can submit a personal photo to be used as their official Catamount ID Card photo, instead of getting one taken on campus. In both cases, to obtain an ID students must  present a  photo  ID such as a valid driver's license.  Residence Hall students will receive their cards on check in day and commuters can pick up their ID card at Church McKee on the Student Services Day in August.
