Did You Know? Regulations Regarding Military Identification

United States Code Title 18, Chapter 33, Section 701 prohibits unauthorized photocopying, reproduction, or possession of Uniformed Services ID (military ID) cards under penalty of fine or imprisonment.  A military I.D. may only be copied for awarding DOD benefits by the federal government.

The USG adheres to this rule.  Photocopying or faxing military IDs to document lawful presence, award military personnel out-of-state tuition waivers, or exempt the special institutional fee for members of the military, is not authorized.

As an alternative to making or accepting copies of military identification cards, institutions should use the Confirmation of Review of Military ID Worksheet to document that a military ID has been reviewed. The Confirmation of Review of Military ID Worksheet can be found under Military Materials under Sample Petition and Out-of-State Tuition Waiver Application Materials on the Tuition Classification Status Information resource page. The worksheet is also available under Other Resources on the Verification of Lawful Presence resource page.  The resource pages can be accessed from the Student Affairs website: (http://www.usg.edu/student_affairs/).
