Policy Name: Use of Identification Cards
Responsibility for Maintenance: Campus Safety and Security
I. Policy Statement
Student ID cards play an important role in assisting the College in maintaining campus security and are used to control access to many student services. Students are expected to use their ID cards for the purposes designated by the College and to refrain from using ID cards for any improper purpose.
II. Reason for Policy
This policy is designed to ensure that student ID cards are used in furtherance of the purposes for which they are issued by the College.
III. Applicability of the Policy
This policy applies to all Onondaga Community College students to whom ID cards are from time to time issued.
The official Onondaga Community College Student ID card, validated each semester, consists of a photo, student number, signature and bar graph. ID cards may be required for access to many services including academic laboratories, materials check-out from the College library, entrance to the book store and other College functions.
All students, both full and part time, are required to carry an official Onondaga Community College Student Identification Card with them at all times while on campus. Students may be asked to show their ID cards to any campus official at any time, and a student may be required to leave the campus if he/she does not produce his/her ID card upon request.
Students are strictly prohibited from (a) permitting other parties to use their ID cards for any reason, including without limitation access to services or facilities, or (b) altering or defacing their ID cards for any purposes.
The loss or theft of a student ID card should be reported immediately to Campus Security and Security.
