Use the documentation tool to determine the identity and legal status documentation you’ll need to get your UTORid and/or TCard. The documentation required will depend on who you are, and whether this is your first UTORid and TCard.
Your documentation must be unexpired and original (digital or photocopies are not accepted).
The name displayed on your identity/legal status documentation must exactly match the official name in the University’s record systems (e.g. ACORN, HRIS).
You may want to check your name and legal status in ACORN for accuracy before submitting your photo and documentation.
If it’s not accurate, or you need to change the first or last name listed in the University’s system (ACORN/HRIS), contact your registrar or business officer before completing the UTORid & TCard process.
Why we verify your identity and legal status
