GET YOUR NEW CityONECard NOW!

The CityONEcard is your new and improved City College ID with added features and benefits.  It is a secure ID that enhances safety on campus.  It is valid for building access and all services.  And it serves as a cash card – a convenient payment method for shopping and dining while on campus! The card also comes with bonus and savings features only available through your CityONECard.   

The College's commitment to maintain a secure environment requires a verified form of identification of all persons on campus.  Therefore, the College requires that all students, faculty, staff, and visitors prominently display a valid CCNY-issued ID card/pass at all times when on campus and when accessing any facility.  Only the CCNY ID Unit issues official CCNY ID cards.

FILING A CHANGE OF INFORMATION FORM


The name on your CCNY records must match the name on the identification document presented to the ID Office. If there are discrepancies between the name on an applicant's proof of identity and the Admissions documents/Records (e.g. different name due to divorce, marriage or change of name), the applicant must reconcile these data by filing a change of information form with the Registrar, with one of the acceptable identification documents listed above.

Step 1: Present information authenticating your identity to the CCNY Registrar.

Step 2: Bring proof of the name change obtained from the registrar's office to the ID Office along with your 30 day temporary ID card.  You will be issued a validated ID card.

If the records have not been reconciled with the 30 day temporary ID expiration date, the expired card is subject to confiscation and further access to the campus facilities will be prohibited.  A "STOP" code may be placed on your CCNY records.


VISITOR PASSES

The ID card Unit and/or the NAC Lobby Security Officer issue Visitor Passes. Visitors must present proper photo ID.  The Visitors Passes are blue in color and do not contain a photo of the visitor.   Please contact the ID Office for additional information.
