There are a few things you should do before the start of trimester to ensure your studies are hassle-free.
Check your enrolment and timetable
Collect your student identification card
The student identification card is needed for access to library services, computing facilities, examination and assessment purposes and in relation to security matters. Full-time students in eligible programs are entitled to various concessions such as public transport and movie tickets.
How do I get my student identification card?
You can have your student ID card produced on the spot at any Student Centre. To be issued with your student ID card you must provide at least one form of photo identification, that is, a 18+ card, driver’s licence or passport.
Once your card is produced, please check all details are correct and alert the staff if there are any errors.
Off-campus / online
You do not need an ID card to access off-campus library services. If you expect to use on-campus library services, you should complete an Application for Off Campus Student Identification Card (PDF 321k).
Please note that it may take up to five working days to produce your ID card and you will need to allow time for delivery. Your card will be mailed to the nominated address in myGriffith.
Need a replacement student identification card?
You can request a replacement card at GriffithPAY.
Expired cards are replaced free of charge (expired cards need to be handed over to Student Administration). Lost cards carry a $15 replacement fee. Stolen cards will be replaced free of charge if evidence of the theft is provided. If no evidence is provided, the card will be treated as lost.
The replacement ID will carry the existing image. If you wish to update your image, please visit any Student Centre.
You can pick up your ID at the selected Student Centre by providing photo ID and your receipt of purchase. Acceptable forms of photo ID include your +18 Card, drivers licence or passport.
Make sure your finances are organised
Your two main costs at University will be your course fees and other study expenses such as textbooks. Most domestic students will be eligible for Australian Government assistance to pay their course fees. These students should refer to the sections on Commonwealth supported students, HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP on Fees and charges.
Check your student email
Almost all important notifications from the University are sent to your student email, so it is very important that you check it regularly.
