Student ID card
New student identification cards
New students must obtain a student ID card to access parts of the University, borrow books from our Library and access copy and print services.
Student ID cards are issued by Student Administration in Student Central, Ground Floor, Building C.
You must present photo ID to be issued with your student ID card (eg drivers licence, 18+ card or passport).
You must carry your student ID card with you at all times on campus, as security officers may request you provide it as evidence that you are a current student. This helps to ensure the safety of all students and staff on campus.
Your student ID card is also needed to:
- access computer labs
- borrow items from the Library
- use USC copying and printing services
- confirm your ID at exams
- Obtaining a concession go card for travelling on public transport
Replacement ID cards
If your student ID card has been lost or destroyed and you require a replacement, a new card is available from Student Administration with payment of a A$10 fee.
A replacement card will be issued once payment has been made. If your student ID was stolen and you can provide a police report as proof of this, the A$10 fee may be waived.
Change of name on ID Card
If you require a new student ID card because of a change of name, you must apply to change your name on USC records by completing a Change of Name form, available in Student Forms and Document Requests page.
You must provide certified documentary evidence supporting your change of name.
You can apply for a Change of Name if:
- your name has been changed with Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages
- you wish to revert to a former name
- your name on USCCentral is incorrect
- you wish your name to appear differently on your Testamur due to cultural or religious reasons
Once your Change of Name has been completed on your USC student record, you will be issued with a replacement ID card.
Expired ID cards
If your student ID has expired but you are still studying at USC, you can get a replacement card from Student Administration.
