How to get your WolfCard

New, undergraduate students attending orientation can use the instructions below to submit a photo online.

Graduate students need to come to the WolfCard office in-person to have a photo taken and pay for their card.

If you are an undergraduate student living in Reno, Sparks or the surrounding area, you can visit the WolfCard Office over the summer to get your WolfCard and avoid the lines.
