Obtaining an ID Card, Badge or Bus Sticker
IMPORTANT NOTE: EFSC Security Offices are still issuing identification cards for EFSC students and employees. However, due to COVID-19, please call ahead to the Campus Security Office that you plan to visit as staff will need to let you inside. There is also information on the Security Office doors about how to contact them if you arrive and the door is locked. You also must wear a mask or other facial covering when inside the Security Office in keeping with EFSC requirements (they will take your photo for the ID without the mask). Visit the main security page for locations and phone numbers.
Eastern Florida State College students, Eastern Florida Online students, faculty, staff and partnership students must get their Photo Identification Card and/or badge, which also serves as an EFSC Library Card, at a campus security office. Community patrons can also receive a card that serves as a library card only.
Identification cards/badges are available at all four EFSC campus security offices.
- Because the security offices are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you can request an ID 24/7. If you arrive at a security office and it's locked, a placard on the door will tell you how to call the officer on campus who will meet you at the office. The phone numbers in the security office contact box on this page are 24/7 numbers.
- Students must bring a valid government-issued photo ID, passport or current year high school ID, plus their current EFSC course schedule.
- For EFSC students, the first ID and/or library card issued is free. If lost, a replacement card for EFSC students is $10.
- For faculty and staff, you can receive a college photo ID badge on the third day of employment – after all paperwork has been entered into the payroll system by Human Resources. ID badges are issued through your home campus Security Department.
Non-Student Community Patron EFSC Library Card Procedure
Note: Effective September 3, 2018, all Community Patrons will have to apply for a Community Patron Library Card.
Community patrons (non-EFSC/non-UCF affiliated persons) who wish to use EFSC libraries must possess a valid Community Patron Library Card. For security reasons, all applicants must undergo a criminal background check (i.e. fingerprinting). Applicants who are designated a Sexual Offender or Sexual Predator (or similar designation in another jurisdiction), or who otherwise pose a security risk to the college as determined by the administration in its sole and absolute discretion are not eligible for and will not receive a Community Patron Library Card.
Community Patron Application Process
- Applicant: Go to cashiers office (Melbourne or Cocoa campus) with a printed Application for Community Patron Library Card. Applications are also available at the Cashier's or Security Office. Pay the cashier $75 for fingerprints/background check and obtain a receipt.
- Applicant: Complete the application form.
- Applicant: Bring the completed application, a U.S. Government issued ID, and $75 receipt to Security (The Melbourne or Cocoa Campus offices provide fingerprinting).
- Security: Security will confirm the person is NOT a sexual offender/predator via the FDLE sexual offender/predator database. If cleared, the applicant will be fingerprinted.
- Security: Once the applicant is fingerprinted, that Security Officer will send the original application form to the Security Lieutenant for file. That same Security Officer shall also email a copy the application to Human Resources as a heads up that the fingerprint/background information is forthcoming (the FDLE information is mailed directly to Human Resources)
- Human Resources: Once Human Resources receives confirmation from FDLE, the Security Lieutenant will be notified of the results.
- Lieutenant: If cleared, the Lieutenant will then notify the applicant by phone that they can go back to the cashiers office and pay $25 for the Community Patron Library Card. The Security Lieutenant will notify the sergeants via e-mail that the applicant has been cleared.
- Applicant: Applicant will bring their U.S. Government issued ID and $25 receipt to the security office where they will receive their Community Patron Library Card.
- The Community Patron Library Card is valid for one year from the date issued and is valid with any EFSC Campus Library.
Parking Decals & Free Bus Transportation Sticker
Campus security offices also distribute parking decals for EFSC students, faculty and staff, which you can request at the time you receive your photo ID, and bus stickers for EFSC students. Currently enrolled EFSC students can ride Space Coast Area Transit (SCAT) buses for free if they have a special sticker attached to their Student ID (It's the small year sticker shown on the sample ID photo). Visit a campus security office to pick up a bus sticker. Please note the following:
- SCAT stickers are valid for one calendar year only
- 2019 stickers available now for your ID card
- Student must have a student ID
- Student must be currently enrolled
