ID Badge


Fall 2020 ID Distribution

If you have already submitted your ID photo, please see the following information on picking up your ID card.

  • Resident students: You will receive your ID cards at move-in check-in.
  • Hybrid students: Important Note: You must have received a negative COVID-19 test result before you can enter a building to pick-up your ID badge. IDs can be picked up from the Security desks at your respective campuses beginning on Friday, August 28th:
    • Boston: Palace Road Security Desk
    • Manchester: Hub Security Desk
    • Worcester: 10 Lincoln Security Desk
  • "Online" students: If you selected online classes for the Fall semester, your ID card will be available for pickup at the beginning of the Spring semester. Any changes to this will be communicated to those students.


All MCPHS students, faculty, and staff are issued an ID Badge.

  • New students will typically have their photo taken during an Orientation session and ID badge issued at time of move-in or the first day of classes. Any student that did not go through an Orientation program must visit the Help Desk to have their photo taken for the ID badge.
  • Online students are eligible to receive an ID badge through the Help Desk at any campus location. Please visit the Help Desk on any campus to have your photo taken and ID badge issued. Note: ID Badges cannot be mailed and must be picked up by visiting the Help Desk.
  • New faculty and staff must visit the Help Desk on their first day to have their photo taken for the ID badge.

A temporary badge will be assigned at the time the photo is taken until the permanent badge is created and issued. Temporary badges will automatically deactivate after two weeks.

Non-functional ID Badge

Should your ID badge become non-functional, i.e. "tap" reader doesn't register badge, a replacement badge will be issued free of charge assuming there is no physical damage to the badge. Please stop by the Help Desk to have your badge tested and a replacement badge issued.

Lost, Stolen or Damaged ID Badges

Should your ID badge be lost or stolen, please notify Public Safety immediately so that it can be deactivated.

Students: There is a $25 replacement ID fee for any lost, stolen, or physically damaged ID badges.
