Microchip supply chain delays affect Irish1Card distribution
Due to the global shortage of microchips caused by supply chain delays, the Campus Card Office is unable to issue standard or replacement Irish1Cards with digitally enhanced cardstock at this time. This is anticipated to be the case through August and into September.
The Campus Card Office has implemented interim measures for incoming students and new faculty and staff.
- Incoming students or students who have lost IDs will be issued temporary access cards that are gold in color with an ND logo, but will not include a printed photo or name. A sticker with the identifying information of the student will be applied to the card.
- New employees or employees who have lost IDs will be issued a blank card with no graphics, but the name and photo will be printed on the card.
As the Campus Card Office receives batches of cardstock, affected faculty, staff and students will receive a communication outlining the process for swapping the temporary card for a permanent Irish1Card. More details are available at irish1card.nd.edu.
