A spouse is a spouse/partner with whom the UW student/employee is in a committed relationship and shares an address. A dependent is a 1) child (natural, legally adopted or step child) under the age of 19, or 2) an adult for whom the UW student/employee is a legal guardian.
To purchase an initial card spouses/dependents of students, faculty, staff and appointed:
A spouse/dependent needs to have the W number of the student or employee with them, and a government issued, photo ID (driver's license, passport or military ID) is required when they come in to have their ID made.
The first 'spouse/dependent' card is $10.00, and a replacement card (due to loss or damage) is $20.00. If you turn in an expired card the replacement is $10.00.
