The Bison One Card is the official Howard University ID Card.
When picking up your Bison One Card bring a valid photo ID, which can be a USA government issued ID or a valid Passport.
After your hiring process is complete the Bison One Card Systems have to wait to receive data from Human Resources Systems. The Bison One Card Office is not always informed when new faculty/staff members hiring has been completed.
As a new faculty/staff member you will receive an Employee ID Number, which is issued by PeopleSoft, and should start with: 000. Please have your Employee ID Number with you when you visit the Bison One Card Office. When your record is in the Bison One Card Systems we will be able to take photo of you and produce your Faculty/Staff Bison One Card. Please bring with you a valid Photo ID, which can be an USA Gov't Issued ID (License, State ID, etc.) or Passport.
Both the Bison One Card Office and the ETS Help Desk share the same space in the iLab (2301 Georgia Ave, NW, Bryant Street Entrance).
As a new faculty/staff member you will also receive access to email, peoplesoft, and other Howard University systems, per the access you are required to have. The ETS Help Desk will provide this information and on-going support to you. Please feel free to contact the ETS Help Desk at 202-806-2020 for more information or visit during normal business hours.
As a Student Employee your primary role is Student. Therefore, you will not receive a Faculty, Staff, Contractor, or Temporary Bison One Card.
