Fall 2020 — Cal 1 Card Distribution Logistics 

If you are wanting / needing a new or replacement Cal 1 Card, please proceed as follows:

  • Online Photo Upload
    Issuance of the initial Cal 1 Card requires that you upload a compliant photo.  If you have previously been issued a Cal 1 Card, you may either use the prior photo or upload a new one for the replacement Cal 1 Card.  To upload a photo, proceed as follows:

    • Log into your Cal 1 Card account and return to this page after you have done so
    • Visit the online Photo Submission Page
    • Review the compliance requirements
    • Select “Upload Photo” at the bottom of the page
      • If you have a saved photo that is compliant, feel free to upload that file
      • If you do not have such a photo, find a solid white backdrop and take a selfie to upload
  • Government-issued Photo ID For In-person Identity Verification 
    Issuance of the initial Cal 1 Card requires in-person identity verification of the cardholder via a valid (i.e. non-expired) government-issued photo identification card (e.g. driver license, State ID, passport, military ID).
