Enrol in courses
You must have completed the enrolment process before you can request a student card. Please refer to the resources below for assistance with the enrolment process.
Student cards can be collected weekdays, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at ANU Student Central (building X-005).
You must present an item of government-issued identification, such as a driver's licence, passport or a similar document upon collection of your student card.
Online students and those unable to attend ANU Student Central
If you are unable to attend ANU Student Central, you can request a student card by completing the following steps:
Take a colour photo of yourself. Your photo must satisfy the following criteria:
- in focus;
- taken in front of a plain white or light-grey background;
- taken with appropriate brightness and contrast to show natural skin tone;
- taken in uniform lighting with no shadows obscuring your face;
- your face is looking directly at the camera and not tilted in any direction; and,
- your eyes are open.
Head coverings, jewellery and glasses, if normally worn, can be included in your photo provided your face remains visible.
If your photo is deemed to be of an unacceptable quality, you will be asked to supply a new photo. The preferred file type for photos is JPEG.
Take a colour photo of an item of government-issued identification, such as a driver's licence, passport or a similar document.
We will use this to confirm your identity. The photo you provide must resemble your likeness shown on your government-issued identification.
Complete an Application for Student Card.
Email all items to email@example.com for processing. Your student card will be posted to the address nominated on your application within seven days of being received; mailing times will vary.
