New cardholders cannot submit their own request. These requests need to be completed and submitted by the supervisor or a PSU representative. First time requestors require additional verification through ID Services. When the request is approved, an email notification will be sent informing the person authorizing to have the employee come to ID Services with a valid government issued photo ID to pick up their PSU Contractor Key Card. All requests will be reviewed within 48 hours (Monday-Friday).
PSU Department Supervisors wanting to pay for an employee's PSU Key Card using their index code can login to their ODIN account and use the following link:
When your request is approved, you will receive a notification by email informing you to have the employee come to ID Services with a valid government issued photo ID to pick up their PSU Key Card. Faculty/Staff receive their first card at no charge so this form is not required for new Faculty/Staff. This form is most often used to request cards for student employees. At this time, only one card can be requested per order. Please submit a form for each card you are requesting.
