Identifications Cards


The Office of Public Safety will issue ID cards Monday to Thursday, from 9 AM to 7 PM in the Public Safety office, room L2.61. On 8/11/22, we will relocate to the Faculty and Staff Lounge, 2.64 NB. 

To obtain an ID card:
Students must be registered for classes, meet the MMR requirements with the Health Office and have their vaccination record uploaded and approved on CUNYFirst unless they have been granted an exception/exemption per the CUNY policy regarding entry to the campus. 

Faculty / Staff must provide the clearance to begin work form, CUNY EMPLID #, and have their vaccination documentation uploaded and approved on CUNYFirst before receiving an ID card. 

To obtain an ID card and/or a validation sticker, students will be asked for confirmation of enrollment via CUNYfirst/Registrar, while faculty and staff must be verified by the Department of Human Resources.

                                      ISSUING STUDENT ID CARDS WITH "PREFERRED NAME"

Previously, students were required to submit a paper request in-person through Jay Express to have their name changed. Students now have access to change their "preferred names" online using CUNYFirst, which then automatically updates their names in class rosters.

Legal name change procedure
Students are required to submit legal documentation (marriage license, court order, divorce decree, etc.) to Jay Express. The student will then receive a referral to visit DOIT to change their name on their email address and Blackboard and to Public Safety to change the name on their student ID card.

Preferred name change procedure
A Student must first update their preferred names on CUNYFirst. Then they must go to Jay Express, who will give them a referral to:
-DOIT to change their name on their email address and Blackboard and to
-Public Safety to change the name on their student ID card.
Students are also informed that they should inform their Professor of the preferred name update, as the class roster will automatically be updated.
