Card Replacements

GWorld Card Office sign

If you need to replace your GWorld card you must visit the GWorld Card Office to either purchase or exchange your current card for a replacement.

Lost or Stolen Cards

If you lost your card or it was stolen, you'll need to pay a $35.00 fee to replace it. 

Damaged Cards

If your card is damaged or not working, we can work to diagnose the problem. If you need a replacement card, it's free when you turn in your damaged card.

Name Change

If your name changes and you need to update your card with your new name, review the requirements to ensure that you follow the process appropriate for your role. Your new card is free when you turn in the card with your old name.

Role Change

If your role changes at the university (i.e. you were a student, but now you're a staff member), you'll need to update your card. Your new card is free when you turn in the card with your old role.

Expired Cards

All GWorld cards have an expiration date printed on the front of the card. Review the requirements to ensure that you follow the process appropriate for your role to renew an expired card. Your new card is free when you turn in the expired one.

Replacement Policies

Replacement cards are only issued in person and you must be a current member of the GW community to receive a replacement card. You can not have a friend or family member pick up your card or have your card mailed to you.

Replacement fees are non-refundable and will not be waived for any reason.

Once you replace your lost or stolen GWorld card, your old card is completely deactivated and can never be reactivated.

You may take a new photo when receiving any type of replacement card.
