CapCard Centre (Student Photo ID)

      • YOUR 2017/2018 CAPCARD

        The CapCard is your official student photo identification, Library card, and your Door Access card.  All new students need to obtain the CapCard after completing the registration process.  As soon as you are registered in a term, visit the CapCard Centre for your card and avoid the line-ups at the start of each term!

        As your Library card, you will be able to borrow material and access online databases.

        The CapCard is required to be presented at the Registrar's Office when requesting any services (i.e. transcripts, changes, etc.) and also when attending the Cashiers' Offices.
