Your student card and your responsibilities 

Your student card is your official RMIT student ID,  and you should keep it safe.  If your student card has expired, you can order a new card online. There are a few things you need to know:

  • You must have your RMIT student card with you to access RMIT campus. 
  • You need to take your card to all 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 Student Connect.
  • Your student card is the property of RMIT University.

Replacement student card (lost/stolen)

You must be enrolled in an RMIT program to be eligible for a replacement card.

You are not eligible for a replacement student card if:

  • you are not currently enrolled at RMIT, or
  • 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 $15.

Step 3. Once your payment has been received, RMIT Student Connect will cancel your current card and print a new student card using your existing student photo. Your student card will be posted to your Australian mailing address in 3-4 weeks.  

Expired student card

All expired RMIT student cards will be temporarily re-activated to ensure students can be on campus in time for their first classes. This means that, if your card has expired, you don't need to apply for a replacement card right now. We'll let you know when you need to do this.

Your original access will be restored to your student card by Monday 18 January.
