Department copy cards and guest copy cards are also created in this office.

All Illinois State University students, U-High students, faculty/staff, and retirees are eligible to open a Redbird Account. Your Redbird Card is the property of Illinois State University.

We have cards available at our front desk as well as brochures explaining how the program works. There are drop boxes available in the office as well to collect any completed registry cards.
