HMSShield  How to Obtain a Harvard ID 
To find out the status of your Harvard appointment, check the HMS White Pages to see if you are listed and your appointment has been set up.

If your appointment is not set up, contact your departmental administrator to check the status of the appointment paperwork. It can take several weeks to be processed at HMS from the date of submission.

If your appointment is set up, visit the ID office to have your picture taken and ID card made. An official picture identification card (hospital ID, driver’s license, passport) is necessary to obtain the ID.
