ID Cards & Bearbucks

Please come visit us in our new location at the Office of the Bursar in Signers' Hall

Coming January 2014!

Effective January 3, 2014 , UAF is introducing a new design for the PolarExpress cards used by students, staff and faculty. The design change is being made to provide a more consistent image across the university. New cards are being introduced as older cards expire. Cards in current use with older designs will still be valid until their expiration dates.

The PolarExpress card is the permanent identification card for students, staff, and faculty of the university. The card includes the cardholder’s name, photograph and University of Alaska identification number.

Questions about PolarExpress cards may be directed to the UAF Office of the Bursar via email at, or by calling 907-474-7384 and selecting menu option #2.
