Program Benefits

Program ID Card Benefits

The program ID Card is your ticket to receive all of the benefits listed below. It is an individual card and cannot be shared with another person; your picture and ID number are printed on the card.

The ID card is a lifetime card that is reactivated each year you register for the program. So, if you already have a card, bring it with you for reactivation. If you have lost your card, you may obtain another one from the USU Card Office for a replacement fee of $15 per card.

Every Summer Citizen who is registered by April 30 will receive a Summer Citizens t-shirt. Having a new design every year makes it fun to collect all you can! Order your size carefully when you register using the chart below. T-shirts will not be exchanged for a different size. Shirts are not available for purchase.
