Travelers holding an Oklahoma driver’s license may need a second form of identification, like a passport, to clear security and board a commercial airliner. REAL ID is a coordinated effort by the states and the Federal Government to improve the reliability and accuracy of state-issued identification documents, which should inhibit terrorists’ ability to evade detection by using fraudulent identification. REAL ID implements a 9/11 Commission recommendation urging the federal government to “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses.” The majority of states have complied with the act or have received extensions to come into compliance.

Additional Information: The RCSA Presentation Grant Program supports air travel for faculty or students to present their research, creative and scholarly activities at professional meetings and conferences.
