The MSU ID Office manages Spartan Cards and MSU NetIDs for MSU students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. In addition, our office troubleshoots issues with Spartan Cards and MSU NetIDs and sells student CATA bus passes, Spartan Cash, and dining plans.

Your Spartan Card serves as an identification card, which distinguishes you as a member of the MSU community. It also serves as an electronic key card and provides access to some buildings and parking gates, MSU Library services, Spartan Cash, admittance to athletic events, and dining plans.

Your MSU NetID provides access to the official MSU network and many other online services on campus. For information about MSU NetIDs, please visit the NetID website.


The MSU ID Office is located inside the International Center, next to Crossroads Food Court. The closest pay-by-plate parking lot is Lot 39, across the street from the International Center.
