Student ID Cards

Thank you for choosing to upload a photo for your student ID. By doing this, you get to choose your own photo and save time when you arrive on campus. The digital photo submission will be used to create your Student ID Card.

  • Write in-class exams and quizzes (at the Instructor’s discretion)

  • You may be requested to present your OC ID Card to security

In addition to your Student ID card your digital photo may be used to generate a profile photo on the Learning Management and/or Student Information Systems in order to create photo-class lists for instructional staff. Your digital photo will be stored locally and can be disposed of at the request of the student or in accordance with Policy A19-Records Management and Disposition.
