Get your BuzzCard

How do I get a BuzzCard?

Before you can be issued a BuzzCard, you must have a Georgia Tech Identification Number (gtID #). Your gtID# is a universal number that identifies you throughout the various campus departments, while the BuzzCard is your physical identification card. A BuzzCard cannot be issued without a gtID#. 

Student gtID#’s: Upon admission to the Institute, the registrar assigns you a gtID#.    
Faculty/Staff/Affiliate gtID#’s: An authorized department administrator or campus sponsor must submit a gtID# request on your behalf.

 

This application allows authorized users to request a GTID number. Everyone also has the ability to Search List of Requestors if they need to make such a request and do not have the authorization.
