Everything You Need to Know about Your GSC ID Card
Getting Your ID: Students
Students at the Gainesville Campus should visit one of the two ID kiosk computers next to the stage in the Student Activities Building. Students at the Oconee Campus should come to room 508 (Student Life Office).
Type your name and birthday into the computer when prompted, and your personalized ID Barcode sheet will pop up on the screen. Print this screen (printers are right next to the computers) and bring it to the Office of Student Life or the Game Room, when it is open, to have your ID made. You must also bring a valid Photo ID to have your ID made.
Getting Your ID: Faculty and Staff
Faculty and staff may print their personalized ID barcodes from their offices or at any college computer. Simply log into the computer using your normal username and password. Click on the start button, and choose "GSC menu." This will expand to a list of options; choose the first one, "Administrative Apps." From the next menu that expands, click on "Faculty & Staff ID Card." Your barcodes will appear. Print this screen and bring it to the Office of Student Life or the Game Room, when it is open, to have your ID made. You must also bring a valid Photo ID to have your ID made.
Faculty and staff dependents may also get ID cards and may use the GSC Fitness Facilities on the Gainesville Campus. "Dependents" is defined as anyone for whom you could obtain insurance through our HR office. For example, children of faculty and staff could obtain IDs but nieces and nephews could not. If you would like your dependents to have an ID card, please bring them to the Office of Student Life. Their ID cards will share your GSC 924 number, so please either print out your barcodes (see instructions above) or bring your GSC ID with you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who gets an ID Card?
Photo identification cards are issued in the Office of Student Life to all GSC students, faculty, and staff. Alumni can also receive a "Library Access" ID card that allows them to have this additional form of identification and use the GSC Library. This card will not allow you access to the GSC Fitness Facilities. To obtain your Alumni Library Access only card, please see Michelle Brown on the Gainesville Campus.
Why do I need an ID Card?
All currently enrolled GSC students are required to have a valid GSC ID. You should carry the card with you at all times and you must present it to any College official who requests to see it.
