Ranger Cards and ID Badges:

Kilgore College has two official picture ID cards – the Ranger Card and the ID Badge.  Both can be used to identify students, faculty, and staff as Kilgore College affiliates.  Ranger Cards have a debit card capability and ID Badges do not.

For Information on How to Obtain a Ranger Card or ID Badge:

The Kilgore College Police Department (KCPD) issues both the Ranger Card and ID Badge.  Call KCPD Kilgore at (903) 983-8650 or KCPD Longview (903) 236-2011 or  visit the KCPD offices on either the Kilgore or Longview campus. Office hours in Kilgore and Longview are Monday - Thursday from 7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.)

Procedure:

The Ranger Card and ID badge are official Kilgore College picture ID cards. In addition to identifying the relationship with Kilgore College, the cards provide access to campus events and activities, residence halls/other buildings, meal plans, and the library. Meal plans may only be used via the Ranger Card or ID badge.

Library Card Info:

Your Ranger Card or ID Badge have a barcode for library use. Make sure you present either at the library.

Policy on ID Picture-Taking:

For ID pictures Kilgore College requires individuals to remove any items not worn as a required part of their daily appearance (i.e. prescription eyeglasses). The only exceptions are items worn for cultural and religious reasons. All bandannas, hats, sunglasses, and/or visors, etc. are to be removed before the picture is taken.

ID Fee Structure:

  1. Student's First ID: The first Ranger Card or ID Badge is free for all students. Students may receive one free card each semester. This includes the cost of the card and administrative cost associated with production.
  2. Student Replacement ID’s: A $25 charge will be placed on the student’s college account when a replacement Ranger Card or ID Badge is issued within the semester. All other types of payments must be submitted to the Cashier’s Office before having KCPD re-issue another ID.
  3. Faculty/Staff/Others: Faculty and Staff are entitled to a free replacement ID. 

Student Discounts:

Some merchants may provide a student discount to all Ranger Card and ID Badge holders. If you are a merchant and would like to offer a discount, please call (903) 983-8189.

Reporting a Lost/Stolen Card:

Lost or stolen Ranger Cards or ID Badges should be reported to the KCPD immediately.  In the case of a Ranger Card, please call 1-866-348-3435, 24 hours a day. The Ranger Card holder will be asked their social security number, birth date, and their mother’s maiden name for verification purposes before the card is canceled. 

Kilgore College provides replacement service of Ranger Cards and ID Badges during operational hours. The ID’s can be replaced at the KCPD offices in Kilgore and Longview.
