Student ID

Get Your Student ID

All students will receive an official identification (ID) card at the beginning of their first semester at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.

The student ID card serves many purposes. It’s required to eat in our dining locations, check out materials in our library, gain access to the student’s dorm room, and more. At Thaddeus Stevens College, students have the opportunity to use their own photo in their student ID. The photo must be recent/new and adhere to the following guidelines:

  • No spots or shadows
  • Photo only includes one person
  • No hats or head coverings (unless worn for religious purposes)
  • The entire face is visible (shoulders to head) and is facing the camera
  • No sunglasses (both eyes are visible)
