UBCcards are re-issued at no cost up to two months prior to the expiration date printed on the back of the card, and any time after the card expires. Renewal eligibility is for students who are enrolled in at least one class in the following term. Renewals for both employees and students can be done in-person at the UBC Access Desk, located within the UBC Bookstore or online. Cardholders are required to update their digital photos at this time.
