Student ID Card


Request Student ID Card Online – Avoid the lineups!

To request a Student ID card using the NEW online method, email ID Cards with your:

  • First and Last Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Student Number
  • Current Address
  • Phone Number
  • Name of the course(s) you are enrolled in and indicate how the program is being delivered: face-to-face, online, or directed studies.
  • A photo of yourself in JPG or PNG format. The photo should be a head shot, from the shoulders up, and taken against a plain background. Remember to smile!
    **Headgear is not permitted unless for medical or religious purposes.

If you live in Cranbrook, please pick up your new Student ID card at the Library’s Circulation Desk.  Government-issued photo ID will be required for card pick-up.

If you do not live in Cranbrook, please note that depending on where you live, it could take up to 2 weeks for the card to get to you.

Please indicate if you wish to have your student ID card mailed to you or if you will be picking it up at the Cranbrook Campus Library.

You must be registered for courses prior to submitting your picture.

Your picture must:

  • Have your face clearly visible and looking directly at the camera - NO profile or glamour shots
  • Be in colour
  • Have a plain background
  • Be in JPEG or PNG format
  • Have been taken in the last 6 months
  • Be suitable for official identification

Your picture cannot:

  • Have shadows on the face because of uneven lighting
  • Contain headgear (hat, etc.) unless for medical or religious purposes
  • Have you wearing sunglasses
  • Have you making inappropriate expressions
  • Be cropped too close (i.e. cutting off the top of your head)


Please keep your Student ID card if you are returning for another semester.  The Library staff will simply update the end date and UPAS sticker (if you qualify).

Lost/stolen cards can be reprinted for a $3.50 fee payable at the Library’s Circulation Desk.

To borrow and renew library materials (even from the comfort of your own home!) or to get student discounts please request a Student ID card. 

Note:  You do not need a Student ID card to access your college webmail or the library's online journal articles.
