Upon entrance to a college or university, a student identification number is assigned to each student. The student ID is used to schedule classes, enter grades and keep track of financial and academic information. If you have lost or forgotten your student ID, finding it should be a simple task to accomplish.

Check your school photo identification card. Most of the time, your student ID can be found on your card.

Locate a billing statement. Schools list student identification numbers on this document for financial records and verification. Typically, it is located on the top, left or right-hand of the statement. During registration, school clerks use these to automatically access your individual account.
