Affiliate Information

All affiliate cards run based off of the fiscal year and will expire June 30th each year. There is a $15 fee payable by cash or check each fiscal year in order to stay up to date. Renewals are sent out in June and you have the option to mail the completed form and payment back in or you can drop it off during the walk in hours listed on our main page. If you allow your affiliation to lapse for longer than a full fiscal year, you will need to come to the office in person to complete the process to again be active as an affiliate in the ISU database. If your record does lapse, then you will need to bring all required documents in again to become active in the system. The requirements for each card type are listed below. Please be sure you have all of the required documents before coming to the office. If you have any questions, please reach out to 515-294-2727 or idcard@iastate.edu.
