Alexander College student ID cards are required to access many of our student services, including the Office of the Registrar, Library Services, and to write exams.
For online terms, physical student ID cards will no longer be issued from the Library. Instead, we ask that all students submit a government picture ID and a recent photo of themselves, which will act as a virtual student ID and be uploaded to the myAC Student Portal.
All new students will be added to a Canvas course called: “AC Student ID Photo”. There will be just two assignments in the course, which will ask students to verify their identity by uploading a government issue photo ID and uploading a photo for their AC virtual ID.
Please submit your proof of identity by uploading either:
Please submit your AC ID photo by following the instructions below:
*These photos will be uploaded to myAC for your professor to see and may also be used for printed ID cards. ID cards give students access to borrowing Library materials, are needed to write on-campus midterm and final exams.*
Please see the sample ID card for a good idea of what your own photo should look like
When a student has uploaded an appropriate photo, we will mark the assignment as “Complete” – no further action from the student will be needed.
Please note – we may mark some non-appropriate images (e.g. images outside of our specifications) as “Incomplete” and attach comments to the image. If a student has uploaded a non-appropriate image, they will have the opportunity to re-upload with a new photo.
