Distance Education Students (Request a Card)

If you’re a post-secondary Distance Education student who would like to request Durham College (DC) student ID, please email photoid@dc-uoit.ca and include the following information.

  • Your full name and student number.
  • Contact number where Campus ID personnel can reach you, Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.


You will be contacted by a staff member from the Campus ID office normally within two business days after your request is received. Your eligibility for receiving a DC student ID card will be reviewed and upon successful completion/confirmation of this stage, a card will be mailed to your address on file.

For security reasons, the Distance Education ID card provided by mail will not contain a photographic image.  It must be shown together with government-issued photo identification to be valid.

If you are able to visit the Campus ID office in person, you can obtain a standard-issue photographic campus ID card instead, or replace your non-photographic card for free (first issuance).

Use of this card is governed by DC policies. The person identified is fully responsible for the use of campus property authorized by this card. Lost or damaged cards must be reported immediately to the Campus ID office.  This card is the property of DC and must be surrendered on request by Campus Security. DC assumes no liability arising out of, or in respect to, third party services facilitated through the use of this card.
