Moraine Valley Community College || Management and Professional Skills


Moraine Valley students are required to have a photo identification card to use certain college facilities, such as the library, Testing Center and computer labs, and to take advantage of certain savings, such as discounts for Fine and Performing Arts Center events and to obtain a student rate at the Health Fitness Center.

Students enrolled in noncredit courses do not need a photo identification card unless required by their instructor.

New Photo ID Required!

Moraine Valley has a new Photo ID system. All current students who are continuing in summer or fall semester and all new students must obtain a new ID.

Currently enrolled students may obtain a new photo ID now. New students should obtain an ID before the end of their first week of classes.

There is no additional fee for the new ID. Currently enrolled students need to turn in their old ID when acquiring a new ID. The Testing Center, library, Health Fitness Center and other college departments will accept both IDs during the transition. Students at the Moraine Valley Education Center in Blue Island and Southwest Education Center in Tinley Park may obtain new IDs at those centers.

How to Get Your ID

Getting your Moraine Valley ID is simple — just present two forms of identification, have your picture taken, and you'll get your ID in a few minutes.

The two required forms of identification are:

  • Current class schedule
  • Picture ID with name, such as a driver's license, state ID, or high school ID. Passport allowed for international students without a driver's license.

Keep your ID with you at all times! Do not discard your photo ID after the semester is over. You'll need it throughout your attendance at Moraine Valley.

This card is the property of Moraine Valley Community College and is not transferable. It must be surrendered to college officials upon request. A lost or stolen identification card must be reported to the Moraine Valley Police Department. There will be a $5 charge for replacements.


$3 per semester, billed to you when you register.

Lost ID

If you lose your ID, there is a $5 replacement fee. Report a lost ID to the Moraine Valley Police Department in Building P, (708) 974-5555, and go to Photo ID Services for invalidation and replacement.
