Lost or Stolen Replacement Cards: Students who require a replacement card will be charged a replacement fee of $20.
How to Request your Student ID Card
Students registered for the current term can request that their Student ID card be mailed to their home address. Sign into your myAccount with your Douglas College Student ID Number and PIN to request your ID card online. The Student ID Card request form is available under the Personal Information Menu in a student’s myAccount page and is titled “Student ID Cards”.
In order to qualify for a student ID Card, students must be registered in the current semester. We will only accept application 30 days prior the start of the semester that the student is registered in. All requests submitted before the application open date will be deleted and applications will need to be resubmitted.
Applications for ID Cards Open
Note: We will continue to process applications until the end of the current semester that the student is registered in.
Students requesting a Douglas College Student ID Card will need to upload a copy of government-issued ID (for information see the Required ID section of the website) and an appropriate photograph that adheres to our photo standards (see below).
Students requesting a replacement Student ID Card will be assessed a replacement fee of $20 on their student account. (See Paying Your Fees for instructions on payment options.)
Students whose card has expired will not be charged a fee to receive a new card.
