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.
