STUDENT ID CARDS ON CAMPUS

All Otis students are required to carry their Student ID card with them on campus at ALL times. ID's are a necessary component to the Student experience at Otis and are needed for the following:

  • To check out Library materials
  • To access Papercut, a declining balance system to pay for prints in the Otis Print Center
  • For Otis student employees to clock-in and clock-out to keep track of working hours
  • To identify yourself to campus security in the event of an emergency

ID Cards are processed in the Office of Student Activities, located in room B02 on the lower level of Ahmanson Hall. New incoming students at Otis receive their initial Student ID at no charge. There is a $15.00 fee to replace a lost or stolen ID card. Fee should be paid to the business office on the second floor of Ahmanson Hall and reprints of ID's are then provided once a receipt for replacement ID is submitted.
