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 theatres and attractions throughout California. Thanks to partnerships with Wells Fargo and the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA), the RCC College Card also provides exciting benefits specifically for Riverside City College students.

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.

The RCC College Card can be obtained anytime at the Admissions & Records office and at the Digital Library's Circulation Desk. 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.
