Frequently Asked Questions - Getting Your First BuzzCard
    • How do I get a BuzzCard for a family member?
      Immediate family members of students, faculty, and staff (spouse and children over eighteen years of age) can obtain a BuzzCard for campus services through the BuzzCard Center. Both spouses/domestic partners need to be present and show proof of marriage or domestic partnership (See OHR for Domestic Partnership Requirements). Children need proof of age. Parents of students, faculty, or staff are not eligible. Family member gtID#s are generated by the BuzzCard Center. The process will take about twenty minutes.
    • How do I get my BuzzCard?
      Students will receive their BuzzCard during Freshman Orientation (FASET). Students must be enrolled and assigned a gtID# by the Registrar before a BuzzCard can be issued. Faculty/Staff will receive their BuzzCard on the first day of employment through the Office of Human Resources.
    • What forms of ID are required to get a BuzzCard?
      Because the BuzzCard is an official State of Georgia Identification Card we require valid, legal forms of ID. The identification submitted must be one of the following:
      • A state issued driver's license or identification card
      • U.S. passport
      • U.S. military ID
      • U.S. Department of State ID Card
      • U.S. Territory ID Card
      Foreign students, faculty, staff, and affiliates must present one of the following:
      • Matricula Consular
      • I-551 Permanent Resident orResident Alien
      • Foreign passport.
