For a Visiting Scholar ID, you must visit Hokie Passport Services in the Student Services Building, Suite 100 on campus. Visiting Scholars must present a completed DS2019/J1 and a photo ID such as a driver’s license or international passport. Visiting Scholar IDs will expire in accordance with the dates on the DS2019/J1. If an extension is needed, the individual must bring an updated DS2019/J1 reflecting the extension to Hokie Passport Services to obtain a new ID. The cost for the first ID is $15. Hokie Passport Services accepts cash, check, or departmental ISR ONLY. There is a $20 fee to replace a lost ID.

For a Retiree ID, you must visit Hokie Passport Services in the Student Services Building, Suite 100 on campus. Retiree status must be entered into the Human Resources system in order for an individual to be eligible for a Retiree ID. Retirees must present a valid form of photo identification such as a driver’s license or international passport. There is a $20 fee to replace a lost ID.

For a Ware Lab Badge, students must first complete three separate online courses. They must complete their EHS Training, take their General Safety Quiz on Scholar, and complete their Ware Lab Survey. Students must wait at least 24 business hours - and possibly up to five days - after completing all requirements to receive their badge as the system does not reflect eligibility immediately. To obtain the badge, students must present their student Hokie Passport ID card and Ware Lab waiver to Hokie Passport Services in the Student Services Building, Suite 100 on campus. If the student possesses their Ware Lab badge from a previous year, they may surrender it to receive a new badge at no charge. The cost for the first badge is $5. There is a $10 replacement fee to replace a lost badge. More information regarding Ware Lab badges may be located at https://www.eng.vt.edu/warelab/access.
