Central ID (Mobile Credential)

General Information

Central Mobile ID is available to all enrolled students and current employees. Tap your iPhone, Apple Watch or Android phone at readers across campus to conveniently access your Central ID. Add your Central ID card either to one iPhone and one Apple Watch, or one Android phone.

More information, instructions, and frequently asked questions can be found on the CentralCard Office site.


Central Mobile ID is available to any member of the CMU community with a compatible Android or Apple mobile device that would be eligible to receive a physical ID card - generally, all current students, faculty, and staff members.


Beyond the default cost of a compatible Android or Apple mobile device, Central Mobile ID is free to eligible members of the CMU community.

A fee may be charged for a replacement physical ID card if required as a result of a lost or damaged mobile device.
