The privileges associated with the ID card are based on tuition and comprehensive fees paid by the student.

All ID cards are the property of the University of Virginia and are provided for appropriate use for identification and access to services on-Grounds. The ID card is not transferable and is valid as long as the holder continues his/her specific affiliation with the University of Virginia. Any misuse, alteration or fabrication of the ID card will subject the holder to disciplinary action by the University.
