The Comet Card is the official identification card for all UT Dallas students, faculty, and staff. The card allows the use of campus facilities and services and offers optional campus accounts for on-campus purchases and payments.

Your Comet Card is issued upon your initial association with UT Dallas and must be retained throughout your affiliation with the University, even though you may not attend consecutive semesters. The card is automatically activated, or deactivated, based on your current status with the University.
