W&M Tribe Card

Connecting campus through a one card system.

Your W&M student ID, also known as your Student Tribe Card, is your official form of university identification - and makes it easy for you to access goods and services all over campus. It serves as your meal plan card, library card, and facility access card to residence halls, Student Recreation Center, the Student Health Center, academic buildings, campus bus transportation and athletic events. 

Tribe Cards Display Preferred Name

Your Tribe Card will display the Preferred/Chosen Name provided to the university through the Admission process or submitted within your Personal Information Questionnaire (PIQ), whichever is most recent. If you prefer to have your Legal First Name displayed on your Tribe Card, do not enter a Preferred Name - or - remove that information from the Preferred Name box within your PIQ.
