Your First Pioneer Card

Welcome to Carroll University! We're excited to make you your first Pioneer Card!

The first step is submitting a photo of your choice. Registered students will receive an email during the summer months (or Winter Break for new spring semester students) with instructions on how to take your picture and upload it to the Pioneer Card Office. The email will contain a personalized photo submission link just for you. Once your photo has been accepted/denied, we will notify you via your Carroll University email. Fall semester students living on campus will receive their Pioneer Cards on move-in day. First-year commuter, transfer, graduate, and spring semester students may pick up their cards at the Pioneer Card Office located in the Campus Center.
