ID Card Office
All students residing on-campus or off-campus, including distance learning students, as well as all employees of the university and its on-site contractors, are required to obtain an SSU ID Card. In order to obtain the card, it is necessary to provide a legal picture ID such as a State ID, Drivers License and/or Passport. It is mandatory that the SSU ID card be visibly displayed at all times while on-campus. A student's card is valid for services each semester once the student has registered for class. The SSU ID Card is not transferable; it is illegal to give your card to someone else. Only the first card is issued without a fee. Replacement IDs cost $35 each.
Lost cards must be reported immediately to the ID Card Office to prevent unauthorized use of any meals or dollars placed on the card.
Please read thoroughly the Cardholder Agreement that you will sign when you receive your ID Card, as this has additional terms and conditions related to your card.
