Student ID Policies

To enhance the safety and security of all personnel on the campuses of Wallace Community College, ALL students are required to obtain a digital photo identification ID. This digital student ID will serve as the official means of identification for Wallace Community College.

Students are required to have their digital ID on their person at all times while on campus. Individuals without proper identification will be asked what business they have on campus. If the answer is satisfactory (i.e., potential applicant filing for admission or financial aid, visitors on campus tour), individuals will be allowed to continue with their business and immediately leave campus upon completion of that business. If individuals claim to be students, College officials will ask for their digital student ID. If none can be provided, the individuals will be asked to leave the campus until they can return with a valid Wallace Community College digital student ID. Those who resist will be escorted off campus by College Police, and further disciplinary action may be taken if necessary.

Students will be required to obtain a digital ID card by the second week of class for attendance verification, as faculty members will not allow a student to attend class without a digital ID past this date.

Students will be required to present proper government-issued photo identification before a digital ID card is issued. For digital ID pictures, Wallace Community College requires individuals to remove any items not worn as part of their daily appearance (i.e., prescription eyeglasses). The only exceptions are items worn for cultural or religious purposes. All bandannas, hats, sunglasses, visors, etc. are to be removed before the picture is taken.
