Student Identification Card Disclaimer

The issuing of a student ID card occurs once as there is no expiration date and an ID number is permanently assigned to each student. In the event that a student begins a new program as a Level 1, Term 1 student after previously taking another program, the student ID card initially issued is to be used.

In the event there is a period of a semester gap or greater between the student鈥檚 full time or part time studies at Niagara College, a student may be issued a new card at no charge if they are no longer in possession of their previous card. Confirmation of enrollment in a new program may be requested by Enrolment Services staff and will be done at their discretion.

It is the responsibility of the student to protect their ID (ie. carry it in a wallet or something similar). Cards can bend, chip, or snap if handled inappropriately. A student will be required to pay the replacement fee for a card that is damaged as a result of personal wear and tear. If the card does not function due to a defect, Enrolment Services will coordinate with Information Technology Services (ITS) and replace the card in question at no charge.

Student ID cards will not be punched for any students or staff (no exceptions). Students enrolled in health related programs will have access to protective sleeves or pressure clips for their personal use. Students in all other programs who wish to wear their student card for identification purposes are encouraged to purchase a plastic case with clip or lanyard from the 兔子先生 Bookstore.
