Verifying Student Identity for Exams: Student ID for Online Students

Published on Thu 08/20/20

Dear Faculty,

We hope this email finds you and your family well at this beginning of the Fall 2020 semester.

One of the services our office provides to our students at Texas A&M University is the printing and delivery of Aggie ID cards. 

With many students electing to attend classes remotely this semester, our office is offering an electronic solution for those remote students who could not be on campus in person to pick up their Aggie Cards. An email communication has been distributed to all students with the instructions below, so they should be aware of this process and where to go to find additional assistance. However, we wanted to share this with you as well so you are aware of what our remote students will need to provide in order to verify identity for online classes and exams. 

Please refer your students to this process should they inquire:

Students should log in to the Howdy Portal and click on the My Profile tile. In the top right corner, they will see their Aggie Card photo along with their full name and UIN. They may choose to take a screenshot of this display with their smart phone, save it as PDF on their computer, or print it out in order to present for online classes and exams.


Thank you for your help and support, and have a safe and successful Fall 2020 semester!

Your Team at Student Business Services
