Obtaining a New or Replacement ID Card

ID cards are available to students registered to take classes onsite and employees during the Spring 2021 semester.

Every BMCC student and staff member must have a validated identification (ID) card at all times. Members of the BMCC community must have their ID card to enter the college, to enter the library, to borrow library books, or to collect student paychecks from the college. Students are expected to present their ID card to any college official (security officer, administrator, faculty and staff member, etc.) who requests such identification.

Obtaining a New ID Card

New students can obtain a BMCC ID card from the Service Desk located at room S-141. Students must be registered for classes before they can obtain an ID card and must provide a form of photo identification.

Newly hired faculty and staff can obtain a BMCC ID card from the Service Desk after Human Resources processes their information in CUNYFirst and they are entered into the ID system. Faculty and staff must provide a form of photo identification as well as an authorization slip from Human Resources, located at room S-717. Research Foundation and contractor employees must be entered into the ID system by the Office of Sponsored Programs before they can obtain an ID card, and must provide both a form of photo identification and an ID request form from their supervisor to obtain an ID card from the Service Desk.

Replacement for a Lost ID Card

An application for a replacement ID card can be obtained from the Service Desk located at room S-141. The form must be filled out and taken to the Bursar’s Office located at room S-330. After the ID replacement fee is paid and the form is signed and stamped by the Bursar’s Office bring it back to the Service Desk and the new ID card will be provided.

If the ID card was stolen the replacement fee can be waived by filling out a police report with Public Safety located at S-211. The ID replacement form must be signed by Public Safety and a copy of the police report must be provided to the Service Desk to have the fee waived.
