UAB and UAB Medicine's student, faculty, and staff ID badge is the ONE Card--a multifunctional, highly secure, single photo ID card.  A ONE Card is required in order to obtain a parking permit, meal plan, BlazerBucks, door access, and other services at UAB.   

If you are a new student, employee, or visitor and need to obtain your ONE Card please follow the below instructions:


New students most often obtain their ONE Cards during orientation.  Please check with your orientation coordinator if you have questions about when you should get your ONE Card. If you will not be attending an orientation, you can get your ONE Card at any carding location after you have registered for classes.


New employees should check with their hiring department about when and how they should go about obtaining their ONE Cards.


For many visitors, a ONE Card is not necessary. However, if you will be visiting with a department or unit and need official identification, door access, parking access, or other services provided by the ONE Card, please consult with the office with which you will be visiting about how to obtain your ONE Card.


If you are coordinating a group such as a summer group, professional student orientation group, or similar who will need One Cards, please email onecard@uab.edu in advance so the appropriate arrangements can be made for your group to get their cards.
