RCC College ID Card

The RCC College Card is your official identification around the college. It allows students access to the library and labs at any college in the Riverside Community College District. As long as your Student Services fee has been paid, it provides entry to numerous student activities, including athletic and performing arts events. Students also receive discounts at many of the local eateries, movie theaters and attractions throughout California.

RCC College ID Card

Students can obtain their RCC College Card once they have met the following requirements:

  • Your home college is Riverside City College.
  • You are able to provide a valid photo ID, such as a high school ID, driver's license, or passport.
  • You are registered for classes. You are not eligible to obtain your College ID Card if you are only waitlisted for classes.

Here is how you can get yours:

  • You are not required to have a photo ID, especially if you are taking your classes online, but if you want one, we can help you out and you don't even have to come to campus!
  • You will need to fill out a quick form: https://bit.ly/RCCsID, sign in with your RCCD student email, and verify your identity with a photo ID.
  • You will submit your own photo. If we have an older photo on file, we will use the old photo.
  • We will mail your ID to you once it's complete (this takes about two weeks).
  • You do not need a new ID each term. If you have an ID from the spring term or even 5 years ago, it is still good!

Keep in mind you do not need your RCC ID to ride the RTA bus. RTA is requiring students use their mobile pass to ride. Here is some info on the RTA mobile pass if you need it.

Each RCC student can be issued up to two College Cards per term at no cost. After these two cards have been issued. the student can wait until the beginning of the next term and receive a new College Card, or they can pay a $5 rush fee and get a new College Card issued on the same day.

The RCC College Card is the property of the Riverside Community College District and must be presented or surrendered upon demand by any authorized college personnel.
