Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

Southern Illinois issues new Dawg Tags

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Students at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale have until Oct. 1 to get their new Dawg Tag IDs. The university switched over to the new system in the summer, removing the Social Security number from the card and from the magnetic stripe. The students will now have a randomly assigned ID number.

However, students are being encouraged to make the transition as soon as possible. The library is already using the new system and if students go to check out books with their old ID, it will take extra time as the student’s records will have to be accessed manually.
