Your Hocking College ID card is used to verify your status as a student, faculty or staff member. Student IDs are validated by registration. Staff IDs are validated based on Human Resources records. Services that require a valid ID card include:

  • Library materials check-out
  • Recreation center memberships
  • Dining halls in JL, vending machines (where available) and campus convenience stores
  • Meal Plans
  • Building access in some locations
  • Faculty/Staff e-mail activation and password resets
  • Bookstore, as proof of identity when making any transactions involving financial aid, refunds and returns, buybacks or other sensitive dealings.

Protect your ID card the same way you would a credit card!
