DragonCard University ID

The DragonCard is the official ID card of Drexel University and can be used to gain access to buildings on campus.

The DragonCard must be carried at all times while on University-owned property. It is the property of Drexel University and is governed by the rules and regulations set forth by the University. The DragonCard is not transferable and is not permitted to be used by anyone other than the issued cardholder. Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional information regarding DragonCard policies.

It is important to take care of the DragonCard in order for it to work properly. Do not punch holes or deface the card in anyway. Doing so will destroy the proximity chip located inside the card which allows for access to most campus buildings. A $20 fee will be assessed to replace a damaged DragonCard. The replacement ID will automatically deactivate the previously issued ID card. It is also important to keep the DragonCard in a secure location that is away from other magnetic cards that may deactivate the ID card. The DragonCard Office does provide a cardholder with the initial card and encourages everyone to utilize it.

Get a DragonCard

There is no charge for an initial DragonCard for students, faculty, and staff. There is, however, a $20 replacement fee to reissue a card that is lost or damaged.

You can have your photo taken at the BCC Public Safety office on the Mt. Laurel Campus. You must show your Drexel acceptance letter and/or a current course schedule, and a valid photo driver’s license, passport, or state-issued photo ID.

Because DragonCards are printed at the University City Campus, it can take five to seven days to produce your new ID. You will be notified by email when it is available for pickup from the Drexel at BCC Office of Admissions on the Mt. Laurel Campus, TEC Building, Room 104.

In the event that your DragonCard is stolen and you have a police report that clearly states this fact, you will not be assessed the $20 replacement fee.

Then notify the University City Campus DragonCard Office and the Drexel University Police that your card was stolen, and provide them with copies of the police report.
