To all members of the PSU community:
PSU is moving to a new ID card system which will significantly increase security of individual information as well as lay the foundation for advancing our technologies in secure building access, tracking usage of campus services, and expanding FlexCash purchasing power within the greater Plymouth community. All students and faculty who are new to campus as of June 2013, or who have had their ID card replaced since June 2013 are already in possession of the new card format and may disregard the remainder of this email. If you are uncertain if you have the new card format, compare your ID card to the card image below. If your ID resembles the card below, you have a new card – you may delete this email and move on with your day.
The vast majority of PSU ID holders will need to visit the Hartman Union’s Printshop/ID Center as outlined in the schedule below in order to acquire your new ID card. There are two requirements for obtaining your new ID:
1. You will need to exchange the PSU ID currently in your possession for your new Panther Pass ID.
2. You will need to provide photo identification in order to receive your new ID. Your current PSU ID will satisfy this requirement so long as the photo is not faded to the point where the image is no longer visible or recognizable.
ID DISTRIBUTION SCHEDULE – BEGINNING MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2014
The new ID cards will be distributed entirely according to surname alpha order and not by student class status or employee classification. Community members may visit the ID Center any time between 11am-4:30pm on the day that your surname is scheduled below. If you are on-campus and can make time to obtain your ID on your scheduled day, we respectfully request that you do so, as we would like to reduce the potential for queues as we move through the schedule. You may, however, visit the ID Center any time between 11am – 4:30pm on any business day AFTER your scheduled acquisition date if you are unable to obtain your ID on your scheduled day. We will only have one staff member available in the ID center during this three-week distribution process, so we are asking for your patience as we try to disseminate 3500+ IDs in a timely manner.
> We will not release any IDs to individuals on a date that precedes their scheduled date.
> You may not send a proxy (ie: a roommate, classmate, departmental administrative assistant, etc) to obtain your ID in your place.
> ID distribution will continue as scheduled regardless of any curtailed operations status that may be called.

Because of their limited access to campus services, all graduate students and students who are documented as student teachers for spring 2014 will be allowed to obtain their new ID anytime between 9am-9pm beginning on their alpha ordered date, including weekends. ONLY graduate students and student teachers will be extended this service, as all remaining ID cards will be secured and unavailable to our student staff for distribution.
The ID cards that are currently in your possession will be de-activated (those IDs without the panther head) as of the end of the business day on Friday, April 4th. If you have not acquired your new ID card by this time, you will risk being denied services where PSU identification is required.
While all best efforts have been taken to ensure a seamless transition between our outgoing and incoming ID systems, there will inevitably be a few hiccups that will need to be resolved. If you discover that you are having issues with your card functioning properly, please contact one of the following individuals.

Lastly, we thank the Student Senate for authorizing the use of their student activities fee reserves to fund the re-carding of all of our current PSU students. Together, we are excited to welcome in the era of the Panther Pass and appreciate your assistance in making the transition to new ID cards a smooth one for the entire community.
