Moraine Valley students are required to have a photo identification card to use certain college facilities, such as the library, Testing Center and computer labs, and to take advantage of certain savings, such as discounts for Fine and Performing Arts Center events and to obtain a student rate at the Health, Fitness and Recreation Center.

Students enrolled in noncredit courses do not need a photo identification card unless required by their instructor.

How to Get Your ID

Getting your Moraine Valley ID is simple — just present two forms of identification, have your picture taken, and you'll get your ID in a few minutes.

The two required forms of identification are:

  • Current class schedule
  • Picture ID with names, such as a driver's license, state ID, or high school ID. Passport allowed for international students without a driver's license.

Pictures of photo IDs will not be accepted.

Keep your ID with you at all times! Do not discard your photo ID after the semester is over. You'll need it throughout your attendance at Moraine Valley. Students should maintain possession of their photo ID despite enrollment status.

The photo ID will be continuously updated for two years or six semesters, following initial issue. After the completion of the second year and/or the sixth semester, a student is eligible to have a new ID issued, at no charge, subject to the same terms as the original ID. Returning students previously issued a photo ID may be eligible for a new photo ID at no charge if at least 12 months have lapsed since last enrollment.

This card is the property of Moraine Valley Community College and is not transferable. It must be surrendered to college officials upon request.


$3 per semester, billed to you when you register.

Lost ID

Lost, misplaced, stolen, or damaged ID cards within two years of issuance are subject to a $5 replacement fee. Note: the only exception will be those students noted above with a 12-month enrollment lapse.

Report a lost ID to the Moraine Valley Police Department in Building P, (708) 974-5555, and go to Photo ID Services for invalidation and replacement.
