Students, Faculty and Staff will be able to get their ID Card throughout the semester. Questions regarding ID Cards can be directed to any Student Engagement office.

To get your ID Card, Students, Faculty and Staff will need the following:
1. Know their entire nine-digit CWID (College Wide Identification number)
2. Be able to present a valid photo ID (i.e. Driver's License, Passport, High School ID, Military ID).

All students attending the Celina, Farmersville, Frisco, McKinney, Plano, Technical, and Wylie Campus should come to campus in person to have their Collin College ID Card made.

For those students who are distance learners, iCollin Campus (online courses only), Courtyard Center, and the Rockwall Center students, we are offering the ability to produce IDs without coming to campus.
Collin College ID Cards may be requested 24-hours after you have registered for courses. To access the submission form and for more information, go to our DISTANCE ID CARD PAGE.

ID Cards will be available for students who are enrolled in courses, and have allowed at least 24 hours to have passed since enrolling. Students enrolling past the payment deadline or in a wintermester/summer course will need to pay for the class(es) or set up a payment plan, or their classes will be dropped.

STUDENT ID FORM (Homeschool / No ID)
To get a Collin College ID card produced, you will need to present a photo ID to verify your identity (Driver’s License, High School ID, Passport, Military ID, etc).  If you were homeschooled and/or do not have any of these forms of ID, you will need to complete the Student ID form and have it notarized.  After you have registered for courses, bring the completed Student ID form to one of our ID offices.

PLEASE NOTE: As of August 14, 2015 (Fall 2015) the ID system has been updated. Any ID Card created prior to this date is no longer valid and will not be accepted and should be destroyed. You must visit any Student Engagement Office to receive your new ID Card (initial replacement IDs are free). Once your ID Card has been upgraded, it will become active each semester you enroll and pay for classes at Collin College.
