A Student Identification (ID) Card is required in order to access CQUniversity campus facilities and to sit your formal examinations. It can also be used to access certain student benefits outside the University.
Your Student ID Card is a non-course specific form of photo identification that includes your full name, student number and mode of study e.g. on-campus or online, full-time or part-time.
Please note that an ID card can only be generated after you have successfully enrolled for the term, as the card will reflect your study load at the time of printing.

My Student ID Card has expired
If you still require a Student ID Card, simply apply for a new card by following the above process.
I’ve lost/damaged my Student ID Card
Should you lose or severely damage your Student ID Card before it expires, you will need to pay a $10 replacement fee. Payment can be processed on the Replacement Student ID Card payment page.
Once payment has been made, your Student ID Card will be processed and made available to you by your nominated method – collection from one of the listed campuses or posted to the address we have on record for you.
If your Student ID Card was stolen, the replacement fee will be waived upon receipt of the police incident documentation provided when you reported your stolen property. A copy of this should be emailed to email@example.com from your student email account, with your name, student number and Student ID Card documentation written in the subject line.
