Student ID

WVU Tech Student ID

Your WVU Tech student ID is your official identification card and is an important resource. Use it to access special student events and services on campus. Present it to select businesses to receive student discounts. It also serves as your meal plan card for use in the Bears Den and the Tech Spot. 

The WVU Tech ID card is part of Mountaineer Card services.
