Did you get your Photo ID card yet?

If NOT, come to the Campus Police Department Administration Office, (Room 2250). You’ll need some form of identification before you can be provided with an Essex County College Photo Identification Card. Please bring with you a copy of your current class schedule and proof of tuition payment or tuition aid form along with your driver’s license or some other photo identification.

The first Essex County Photo ID Card is FREE of charge, but there is a $5.00 fee for any replacement!

The Essex County Photo ID Card is needed to gain access to the building, use the library facilities, and use the computer labs. The Essex County College Campus Police Department will be glad to assist YOU in acquiring YOUR Photo Identification Card!

Student Identification

All I.D. cards are issued free of charge to new students by the Public Safety Department. To obtain an I.D. card, all students must have two pieces of identification (a driver’s license and a Social Security card are commonly used). Students must also present proof of tuition and fee payment for current registration. The student’s I.D. card authorizes access to ECC and use of its facilities (e.g., library and computing labs); therefore, it must be retained by the student throughout the student’s stay at ECC. Lost or mutilated cards may be replaced upon payment of a $5.00 fee at the Public Safety Department. Further information regarding I.D. cards can be obtained from the Department.
