Prepare for semester

Student ID cards

It takes us 24 hours to create your student ID after you've enrolled in mySI-net. Once you've waited 24 hours, collect your ID from campus.

ID card photos

You have two options for your new student ID: you can either upload your own photo at home, or we can take a photo for you when you get to campus.
