Obtaining a Ridgewater Warrior ID
Your Warrior Card will get you discounts at a variety of local businesses. The Warrior ID card is also your Ridgewater library card and a free pass to all Ridgewater home sporting events, student life activities, and choir and theater productions.
If you are a Ridgewater online student and are unable to drive to campus to get your Warrior ID, please follow these steps.

- Photo should have a white background.
- Please make sure the photo is taken or cropped from your shoulders up.
