Student ID Card Overview

A CBC student ID card is a valuable student resource! While student ID (SID) cards are not required by the College, they do offer a variety of benefits and opportunities for current students. You can use your SID card to check out materials and books from the CBC Library. Popular benefits include access to both the Fitness Center and Academic Success Center. Use your SID card as a bus pass for local public transit. Your student ID card may also provide you with discounted or FREE admission to campus activities and athletic events.
