As a CT State student, you're required to obtain and keep your student ID visible at all times while on campus. Your student ID may be necessary to enter buildings and parking garages, borrow library books, use college computers, obtain class schedules, utilize campus food pantries and attend campus activities. Additionally, many local merchants and restaurants provide discounts to college students who show their current student ID.

Your ID has an expiration date, which is the end of the semester you're enrolled in. Please keep your ID card for future semesters. New expiration labels are available where photos are taken. Replacement ID cards cost $10.
