Student ID

Student ID is a document confirming one’s student status and entitlement to statutory discounts. For the purpose of student’s identification, the ID contains the basic personal data (encoded onto the chip) and a photograph. It is issued to every JU MC SME student at the beginning of their 1st year free of charge.



The ID requires biannual prolongation. The expiry date is shown on the holograms (the stickers on the back of the ID;  valid by March 31 and October 31 of each year). The ID is prolonged by a staff member at the School Office on the condition that the student has met all their obligations (academic and monetary) towards the university.


Discounts and privileges

The student ID entitles its holder to statutory discounts: 50% discount on the city public transportation (no age limit), and discounts in long-distance public transportation such as coaches and trains (by the age of 26 years old). It will also enable one to benefit from various commercial offers directed to students (e.g. discounts in bookstores).


Additional functions

The student ID can also serve as a library card or a public transportation pass, once encoded with appropriate information by respective bodies. To have a tram pass encoded onto the ID, one needs to visit the MPK office (see “Punkt Sprzedaży Biletów”).



If the ID is lost, stolen or damaged, a duplicate can be issued by the School Office. To request a duplicate of the ID, a student must submit an application via Applications in USOSweb. To ensure swift processing of your request, make sure to upload a confirmation of payment of the re-issue fee (if applicable) at the time of placing the request.

If you want to have your photograph* changed, please attach a new photograph to the application too. If you want to keep your old photograph, please note that in the request. Failure to do that will extend the processing time to accommodate for the 7 business days that the office is obliged to allow you to deliver that photograph to us.

*Photo format:  size: 35 x 45 mm, jpg format, 300 dpi; The photo should be current (taken not more than 6 months ago), with no headgear or glasses with dark lenses; the photo should show the entire head (from the top) and the upper part of the shoulders, the face should occupy 70-80% of the photo, the photographed person must have a natural facial appearance (without any mimic gestures), with their mouth closed. The background must be light, plain and well-lit.
