Student Identification

SID, PIN, and identification card

Student Identification Number

Student Identification Numbers (SID) are no longer issued. New students will only receive a ctcLink ID at the time of admission. Students who have an SID should keep it for reference but will no longer use it when accessing systems online or on-campus.


By default at the time of admission, your personal identification number (PIN) is your six digit birth date, without spaces or dashes (MMDDYY).

How to get your ID card
