Student ID Cards

All new students are eligible to receive a student ID card from the Office of the Registrar. Ongoing students should retain their ID card for the duration of their studies, and do not need to obtain another unless they have lost or damaged their original. (There is a $15+GST charge for a reissued card.)

Your student ID card also serves as your NorQuest library card.

How to upload your ID card photo

New for Fall 2020 – you can now upload your own ID card photo in MyQuest!

New students will receive an email to let them know they can log into MyQuest and upload their own ID card photo and ID verification. Follow the link in the email to access the new Document Attachments page in your MyQuest account.

Two documents must be uploaded to obtain your student ID card:

  1. ID card photo: Review and follow by these basic guidelines before submitting your photo:
  • Submit as a JPEG file only
  • Background must be solid white or off-white
  • Photo must be in colour
  • Photo must be shoulders up and you must be directly facing the camera
  • Do not have any other object or person in the picture
  • No filters, sunglasses, or hats
  • Show us your best smile!
  1. ID verification: Upload a photograph or scan of a separate piece of government-issued photo ID. This will be used to verify your identity.

Acceptable forms of government-issued photo ID include:

  • driver’s license
  • Permanent Resident card
  • passport
  • government-issued identification card

Unacceptable forms of ID include:

  • debit and credit cards
  • social insurance number cards
  • interim or temporary driver’s licenses
  • business and organization membership cards

Once you see the names of the files you uploaded on the Document Attachments page, your documents were uploaded successfully.

After you have submitted an appropriate ID card photo and ID verification, we will generate your card and send an email (to your MyMail address) with further details. Due to high volumes, please allow four days from uploading your documents to receive your email.

Fall 2020 ID cards

For the fall 2020 term, ID cards will be issued electronically through MyMail, unless you have a clinical placement or in-person lab occurring in the fall term. You will be notified through your MyMail if there is a physical card available for you, and directions will be provided for curb-side pick-up.

Physical ID cards will be made available to all students when it is safe for the campus to re-open to the public and resume in-person activities.

Electronic ID cards are acceptable to borrow library materials.

Clinical ID cards

Students who are going on clinical placement in the fall term may require a Clinical ID card. This may apply to students in the following programs:

  • Advanced Education in Orthopedics for LPNs, Health Care Aide, Hospital Unit Clerk, Interdisciplinary Therapy Assistant, Medical Device Reprocessing Technician, Medical Office Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, and Practical Nurse

If this applies to you, note the following:

  • Following the guidelines above, you can upload an ID card photo and ID verification in MyQuest.
  • Before uploading your photo, ensure that your address in MyQuest is correct.
  • If you are an ongoing student but have not previously received a Clinical ID card, email to request one.

ID Cards FAQ

Do I need an ID card for the Fall 2020 term?

We recommend that all students in credit programs have an ID card. You may not need it right away, but it will be useful for borrowing from the library. Since there is no U-Pass for the Fall 2020 term, you do not need a physical card.

I already have an ID card – do I get a new one?

No. Your existing ID card is what you need.

I have lost my ID card – how do I get a new one?

Email An emailed electronic card may be sent to you at no charge. When physical cards are issued in the future, there is a $15 (+GST) charge for a reissued card.

I did not receive an email to tell me I can upload my ID card photo – why not?

You are only eligible to receive an ID card after you have registered in at least one class. Make sure you are registered. If you previously received an ID card, you will also not be eligible to upload your photo. Email if you have questions.

Can I receive a physical ID card?

For Fall 2020, we are issuing electronic cards only. Exceptions will be made for students who require a Clinical ID card for in-person labs on campus in the Fall 2020 term. If you have a specific reason that you require a physical ID card, email so we can look into this with you.

I have a clinical placement after Fall 2020, do I need my Clinical ID card now?

No, you do not need your Clinical ID card until the term when you will be doing your clinical placement.
