Student IDs

Student Information

With these changes, all ACU students are required to obtain a new physical Student ID from the Campus Safety office.  To assist with this process, Campus Safety has already begun pre-printing Student IDs for students that have a photo on file.  Students must have a photo on file before their Student ID can be printed.  Students can obtain this physical Student ID any time between 1:00 – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, starting Monday, November 18, 2019. 

In order to obtain the new physical Student ID, all students are required to present a government issued photo ID to verify their identity.  Acceptable forms of ID include a government issued passport, driver’s license, or standard ID. The new physical Student ID is provided free of charge.
