Student Life Services

Some of the many services and resources provided by Student Life include the following:

Student Photo IDs

Students enrolled in at least one credit hour at College of DuPage can obtain a Student ID card. ID cards are available in the Office of Student Life, Student Service Center (SSC), Room 1217, during regular business hours when classes are in session* Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students must be enrolled in the following semester to get a new ID in the last two weeks of a term.  Student ID cards are valid for three years and free for first-time ID or expired ID holders. There is a $5 charge for non-expired replacement IDs.

The college's photo IDs are both convenient and versatile—the same card can be used at the library, as a P.E. pass and as "student identification" for various local discounts at movies, sports events and other activities. For more information, call Student Life at (630) 942-2243.

*summer hours Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
