Before you can be issued a BuzzCard, you must have a Georgia Tech Identification Number (gtID #). Your gtID# is a universal number that identifies you throughout the various campus departments, while the BuzzCard is your physical identification card. A BuzzCard cannot be issued without a gtID#.
Student gtID#’s: Upon admission to the Institute, the registrar assigns you a gtID#. Faculty/Staff/Affiliate gtID#’s: An authorized department administrator or campus sponsor must submit a gtID# request on your behalf.
