All new university employees will be issued an official ETSU photo ID Card once all of the appropriate information has been entered into the ETSU integrated student information system (Banner) through the Human Resources Department to where an E number is assigned. ID Services does not assign E numbers.
Employees are encouraged to come by the ID Services office after New Staff Orientation or after thier first day of employment. Please bring a copy of your employment contract to verify your employment or Human Resouces will email roster created from New Staff Orientation to the ID Office with all pertinent information along with the assigned E number to where the employee ID Card can be produced. You also must have a valid, government-issued, photo ID. Your first ID card is provided at no cost to you; however, replacements cost $25.00 plus tax [Prox. cards are $20.00]. You must turn in your ID card, as part of the checkout process, upon leaving the university.
Non-ETSU employees (i.e. visiting scholars, volunteers, etc.) who are not issued an ETSU E# can have a guest ID card made at the cost of $10.00 to be paid by either the department or the cardholder. Request forms for Guest card to be filled out by the representing departments can be found here.
University Departments may request ID badges for employees if needed.
These badges are the same size as the ID card only vertical instead of horizontal. They have no electronic functions such as door access or debit plans. Instead of the library barcode and E# on the front of the card, we can print the department name and the job title of the employee.
Departments must send the following request form for any and all badges to be approved for printing. These must be received before the badge can be printed. Badge Request Form.
Badges will be made from the ID card photo on file. The cost of each badge is $10.00 for ETSU students/faculty/staff and $10.00 for non-ETSU guests. If the department is not purchasing the badge, please notify the student/faculty/staff/guest that they will be personally responsible for that fee. The individual will be responsible for replacements ($25.00 + tax) due to the badge being lost or stolen.
*Defective IDs and badges due to normal wear and tear will be replaced at no charge
upon returning the most current badge or ID card.
