Your student card and your responsibilities 

Your student card is your official RMIT student ID,  and you should keep it safe (but if you lose it, it's not the end of the world - check out the Lost or stolen student card section on this page to find out more).  If your Student card has expired, you can order a new card online! There are a few things you need to know:

  • When you're on campus, you must have your RMIT student card with you at all times. 
  • You need to take your card to all exams and formal assessments.
  • If your card is damaged, lost or stolen, order a replacement card online as soon as possible. Until you do, any misuse of your card will be your responsibility.
  • Your student card is invalid if you're no longer enrolled at RMIT.
  • If you cancel your enrolment, you must return your card to RMIT Connect.
  • Your student card is the property of RMIT University.

  • you have completed/graduated from a program, or
  • you have cancelled a program

How to order your replacement card

Step 1.  Report the loss or theft to Campus Safety and Security on the relevant campus as a matter of urgency. RMIT Security will immediately deactivate the card. Until you report your card to Security and order a replacement card, any misuse of your card will remain your responsibility.

Step 2. Go to Replacement Student Card Online Payment and complete the Online Request form. The charge for the replacement student card is $10.
