Illinois App, Illini ID
The Illini ID can be used in many places where an i-card is accepted. It presents a QR code for touchless scanning. Illini ID features much of the same information as your i-card, including your name, i-card photo, and affiliation (Student, Faculty/Staff, etc).
You must connect the Illinois App with your NetID to use Illini ID.
- To connect your NetID, click on the gear in the top-right of the Home screen to open the Settings menu, then find the NetID section.
Access your Illini ID:
- Open the Illinois app and in the bottom bar, tap on Browse.
- Scroll down and tap on Wallet.
- Scroll through the cards to tap Illini ID.
ISSUE: Illini ID only shows UIN and not a photo, name, etc.
Illini ID requires an active, non-expired i-card. The app cannot retrieve your details if your i-card is expired. Please contact the Urbana ID Center to renew your i-card.
