Photo ID

Identify Yourself

Get a photo identification card (Photo ID) for library privileges, admittance to some college-sponsored activities, student elections, use of the exercise facility, and other college services. Your Photo ID displays a photo with your name and A number and is valid as long as you are actively enrolled in classes or employed.

Steps to Receive a Photo ID

1. You must be registered for NSCC classes.

2. You must provide one of the following items.

    • A driver’s license with a photograph
    • A valid State of Tennessee photo ID
    • An original birth certificate
    • A passport

To update the Photo ID card to include subsequent enrollments, the student must present the Photo ID card and their current enrollment status will be verified.

Highly Recommended

Having a Photo ID is not mandatory, but students and employees are encouraged to obtain a card during their first semester.

Cost for Photo ID

The initial Photo ID card is issued free of charge. There will be a $10 replacement fee assessed for cards that are lost, damaged, stolen, or those that require a name change.

Replacement fees must be paid at the Bursar’s Office. Please present the receipt to the Photo ID Technician at the time of replacement Photo ID processing.
