Features of the ID card
Laucala Student ID cards are printed on a laminated plastic card. This card has the same size as a credit or a bank card. The ID Card's front face has the USP logo, your student ID number, name, date of birth and nationality together with your photo. It also has a barcode. This barcode has your Library ID encoded into it. Note that the library ID will have to be activated by the Library when you first attempt to loan a book from them. The rear face of the card has a magnetic strip with security encoding, a signature strip and a barcode with your student ID number encoded into it.
Who Gets an ID card
The ID card is provided to all registered students (excluding school based foundation students) regardless of the mode of study.
How to get an ID card
New students will have their ID card taken during the registration period at either the registration venue or the Student Services Centre. Continuing students who have lost their ID cards are required to pay $25 at the University cashier and present their receipt to the Student Services Centre where a new ID card will be issued. IDs will be printed and given to you on the spot. Note that it is a requirement to have a new photo taken for every ID card printed.
Your ID card expires as soon as you cease to be a registered student, either if your account is placed on Hold for non payment of fees or if you do not register for any courses in a semester.
