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.
Pursuant to the Law on Higher Education and Science dated July 20, 2018 (art. 51b sec. 4 and art. 198b) – student IDs remain valid over the period of limited or suspended functioning of the university and 60 days after return to regular functioning, without the need of confirming the validity.
Hence, all IDs that were validated with a stamp dated 31.03.2020 or 31.10.2020 remain valid until November 29, 2021, without the need of validating it at the office (and obtaining a new sticker). Information on the legal basis of the above (in Polish only): here.
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).
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 fill out the FORM, and submit it to the School Office along with the confirmation of payment for the reissue (unless the reissue is required due to a faulty original ID).
