Identification (ID) Cards

Identification (ID) Cards

As a student registered at McGill you are required to present an ID card to write examinations, when using libraries and student services and certain laboratories, and to access residence buildings.

To receive your ID card, you must be a registered student, and you must present your Permanent Code information and proof of legal status in Canada (for a list of acceptable documents, see Legal Documents: What Documents Does McGill Need from You?.

ID cards will not be issued if any of your legal documents are missing.

The Student Identification Card is the property of the University, for use by the cardholder only and is not transferable. If you withdraw from all of your courses, you must attach your ID card to the withdrawal form or return it to Enrolment Services (or the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Student Affairs Office, Macdonald Campus).

  • New students must be registered for at least one course to obtain an ID card.
  • You must allow at least three hours after you have registered before applying for your ID card.
  • If you do not register for consecutive terms you should retain your ID card to avoid having to replace it when you re-register.
  • If your card has expired there is no charge for a replacement as long as you hand in the ID card.
  • If you change programs or faculties there is no charge as long as you hand in the ID card.
  • If your card has been lost, stolen or damaged, there is a $25 replacement fee.
  • If you need security access to labs or other facilities, see www.mcgill.ca/security/services/access.
