GCC Student ID Card

GCC student ID cards are issued by the library (third floor, core) during regular service hours; no appointment necessary. Registered GCC students may request an ID card in-person at the library, or online through MyGCC (see instructions for online photo submission below). 

  • You must be registered for a class in order to receive a GCC photo student ID card. Application and acceptance to the college alone is not enough to issue an ID card. We do not make ID cards for alumni.
  • A chosen first name entered in myGCC will appear on the student ID card. If no chosen first name is entered, your legal first name will appear. Contact the library if you have any questions.

Instructions for Requesting a GCC Student ID on Campus:

  1. Visit the library during regular service hours and ask for an ID card at the front desk.
  2. You will be asked to verify your identity by providing a government or school issued photo ID or by logging into myGCC in front of a librarian. If you are not able to meet these criteria, we will accept 2 alternate forms of ID, including:
  • Social security card
  • Birth certificate
  • Credit or debit card in their name
  • Utility or bank records with your name, dated within the past 60 days
  • College correspondence with your name, dated within the past 60 days

Instructions for Requesting a GCC Student ID Online:

  1. Log into MyGCC.
  2. Upload a photo to MyGCC by clicking the photo icon in the lower right-hand corner. The photo must meet all requirements.
  3. Check the box that says, “Please check if you would like a printed ID card mailed to your house. Cards are mailed on a weekly basis.”
  4. Library staff will notify you if there are any issues with the photo you submitted. Your request for an ID card will not be processed until all photo requirements are met.
  5. Your ID card will be mailed to the address listed in your Banner account, and should take approximately 1-2 weeks to arrive.
