As a student, you are eligible to receive a student photo ID card. However, with physical distancing restrictions currently in place face-to-face services in Student Services are available by appointment.
You can also get your photo ID card by mail. To do this, you will need to email, from your North Island College email address, a jpeg headshot between 10-2500KB, and a clear copy of another photo ID (driver’s license, passport, BC ID, etc.) to: email@example.com. Once Student Services has received your jpeg headshot, they will produce your ID card and mail it to the current address on your NIC student record. If you have moved and not updated your address, you must do so, or the card will be sent to the wrong address.
