Student Identification Cards

Each academic year, both new and returning Lake Michigan College students need to obtain an LMC Student Identification Card that is valid for that academic year. ID cards are valid from Fall of the academic year through Summer of the following year. For example, a 2015-16 ID card is valid from Fall 2015 to Summer 2016.

Obtaining a Card
A $2.00 fee will appear on your schedule bill at the time of your first registration activity for fall and each subsequent semester except for summer. Visit the Student Services One Stop area of the Napier Avenue, Bertrand Crossing or South Haven campuses during regular business hours with a photo identification (valid driver’s license, passport, or other official identification card).

Card Guidelines
Students must carry their ID cards when on campus and be able to present the card if asked to do so by LMC faculty or staff. Loaning or allowing someone else to use your card is prohibited. If a student's ID card needs to be replaced, a $2.00 replacement fee will be charged.

Card Benefits
LMC Student ID cards allow students to use campus computer labs, check out materials from the LMC library, gain free admission to LMC Red Hawks home athletic events and student productions, and earn a 10% discount on Mendel Center Mainstage tickets. Several local businesses offer discounts to students with valid IDs. Your Student ID card is also used to badge in through Papercut to the Canon multifunction printers/copy machines and selected open lab printers.
