Every student should secure an identification card (ID) from the office of student life on the Hattiesburg campus or the Office of Student Services on the Tradition campus. Students must present a copy of their class schedule in order to be issued an ID card. The ID card is the student’s official university identification and should be carried at all times. University officials, including faculty, staff, and security officers may ask students to present a valid WCU student ID at any time. Failure to present one’s ID will result in severe disciplinary action. Full-time students use the card for admission to school-sponsored activities, as a voting permit during student body elections, for securing a copy of the student handbook, and for library privileges. Part-time students have library privileges through the use of their use of their ID card.
