ID Cards

KCC Photo ID information

Effective Fall 2006, students enrolled at KCC are required to have a KCC photo ID. The photo ID card is required to be carried at all times while on campus. Students must be prepared to present their card to campus security, KCC faculty and administration, and personnel in the Accounting Office, Admissions and Registration, Miner Memorial Library, bookstore, and other offices. Students will receive ID cards during regular registration.

For more information about photo ID processing and validation, visit the New Semester FAQ page.
