The ID Center produces Pitt-Johnstown identification cards for students, faculty, staff, and certain affiliates of the University. The center also generates badges for security purposes to employees who work in varying locations and to outside contractors authorized to work on campus.
Cards are produced on a state of the art ID Card printer and laminator and can be produced on-site in a matter of minutes.
Pitt-Johnstown ID Center
G52, Student Union Building
8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
(special accommodations can be made).
The card serves as a means for students to access meal plans and their campus residence hall. Students may add funds to their individual Mountain Cat Cash account at the Business Office, 125 Blackington Hall. Mountain Cat Cash is used for making purchases at all campus eating venues and at the Bookstore. Students may also use Mountain Cat Cash at photocopiers and color printing machines.
Vending funds are added to this account at one of several campus revalue stations. These stations are in the Owen Library and near the User Services Support desk in Blackington Hall. Once funds have been added they cannot be refunded.
There is no initial charge for a Mountain Cat Card. There is a $20 fee to replace a lost card and a $5 fee to have a temporary card issued. If a card has been misplaced, the ID Center will deactivate that card and can then issue a temporary ID if requested by the student. The temporary ID card is valid for a period of seven days. If the original card is found during this period, the owner should return the temporary card to the ID Center at which time his/her original card will be reactivated.
Freshman ID Cards
Students on campus for the summer Academic Planning sessions or Placement Exams will have photos taken at that time. These cards are not immediately produced, but are distributed to students in August during New Student Orientation and move-in day.
