Student ID Cards

New Student ID badge

ATTENTION! All students making a purchase in the bookstore with a voucher (including Pell grants) are required to have a student identification card.

When visiting the bookstore to make a purchase, please bring a copy of your class schedule and your student identification card with you.


A SSC student identification card is necessary to secure certain privileges and services on campus. It is highly recommended all new students visit the Office of Student Life, RM 2329 (located on the second floor directly across from Registration and the Cashier), to receive a SSC student Identification card immediately after registering for classes.

Any student ID card issued before June 16, 2010 is void and a new card must be issued.

No one will be issued an identification card until the identity of the individual can be verified.  Identification documents presented must be issued by an appropriate governmental agency and contain a photograph (e.g. drivers license, State ID, passport, etc.). This government identification document, along with a student's SSC student identification number, must be presented to the Office of Student Life in order to obtain an identification card.

Not sure what your SSC student identification number is? Your student identification number is contained in your "Welcome" email from the College, along with your user name and password for My SSC.
