Your WPU ID card is your University ID that assists in identifying you within our community, allowing students, faculty members, and staff access to campus facilities, athletic and cultural events.

Getting Your WPU ID Card

The first step to obtaining your initial WPU ID Card is to submit your photo through the Application Portal.

WPU ID Card Services is located in the Office of Admissions, located in upper Egtvedt (Room 205). When you come in to pick-up your ID card, have your ID card printed, or to pick-up your replacement card, be sure to know your WPU ID number and bring a Government issued photo identification (this is necessary to process your request for your WPU ID card).

  • Driver’s license or state-issued Identification card
  • Passport
  • Military ID
  • Permanent Resident Card (Green Card)

*Your WPU ID is valid for as long as you have an active relationship with Warner Pacific University. You do not need to renew your it annually.

*An WPU ID is optional for online students; ID Cards are needed for particular building access to evening, in-person classes.

Please note: During peak on-campus events, such as, Knights Orientation, you may experience a wait time for obtaining your WPU ID card. Therefore, in order to avoid any delay with your ID card retrieval, please ensure that you upload your photo to your Application Portal.

How to Upload Your Photo

For new students, it is recommended that all initial photos for WPU ID Cards are submitted online through the application portal check list. If you are unable to submit your photo online, you may come to the Office of Admissions during the WPU ID Card Services hours to obtain an ID Card.
