The Eagle ID Card is UW-La Crosse's official ID Card. It is University policy that all students and staff have an official University ID Card. This card can be obtained and replaced at the Card Office at 1131 Student Union. For your first card please bring some form of identification with you. This could be a driver's license, state issued ID, passport, military ID, permanent resident alien card, non-immigrant visa, certificate of U.S. naturalization, or Mexican consular card.

Use your Eagle ID to vote?

Remember: They expire for voting two years after being issued 

You can use your Eagle ID to vote in Wisconsin — but the ID is only good for voting up to two years after it is issued. 

If you plan to use your Eagle ID to vote in this fall’s election (August primary and November general election) be sure to check when it was issued. Eligibility to use the Eagle ID for voting expires two years after it is issued. 

Wisconsin residents can still use their Drivers License to vote. Out-of-state students voting in La Crosse can use their Eagle ID.  Get complete voter ID info at:
