Southwest Student Identification (ID) Cards

New security stickers are required for a student’s photo identification (ID) card each semester a student is enrolled in a class or classes. The stickers will only be valid for the current semester. Students must obtain a new sticker for each semester (fall, winter, and/or spring) they are enrolled. (The photo ID card will remain the same). To obtain a new security sticker, students should be prepared to verify their enrollment, and paid tuition or financial aid.
