Student ID Cards, ID Numbers and Identity Protection
Howard Community College has established processes to enable student to protect identity and confidentiality rights. Students are expected to have their college photo ID cards with them at all times when on campus. If a security officer requests that a student to show their ID, they are expected to comply. These cards are required to transact college business, to utilize certain college facilities, such as, but not limited to, the athletic and fitness center and computer labs, and to attend college functions. They are also required to check out materials from the HCC Library.
ID cards are issued to students at the Security Office (RCF-117) after registering for classes. Students must have their card re-validated following registration each term.
To obtain an ID card, you need:
- Proof of HCC enrollment (tuition receipt or class schedule)
- A valid photo ID
- Vehicle Parking Permit Number and Vehicle Tag Number
All students are responsible for knowing their student ID number, which is required for many transa c tions. Whenever possible, students are urged to provide their student ID number rather than their social security number (SSNs should only be provided when required; for example, for certain financial aid documents.) Students are also strongly advised to safely maintain all documents that have identifying information on them, especially ID or SSN.
