Request or renew your Student ID card
New Student ID
To obtain a student ID card:
1. Take a selfie!
- Head and shoulders only. Don’t cut off part of your head/hair – we want to see your entire head! You hair can be down or pulled back.
- Use a light coloured neutral background.
- No hats or sunglasses please (headgear with religious significance is welcome).
- Smiles are OK!
- Must be in JPG (jpeg) format.
- 300dip resolution.
- At least 200 pixels wide and at least 200 pixels tall.
2. Email your selfie to email@example.com
- Make sure your mailing address is up-to-date on your student record before you request your card.
- If you want your card mailed to a different address, provide the address when you email your selfie.
- The subject line of your email should be “Request for Student ID Card”
- In the body of your email, you must include:
- Your full name
- Your NLC Student ID number
- Your program (especially important for ECEC, HCA, and PN)
- Don’t forget to attach your selfie!
- Attach a scanned copy of a government issued photo ID clearly showing your photo and legal name
Your Student ID Card will be mailed to you unless you have any classes scheduled on‐campus. Students who are registered in courses on campus will be able to pick up their ID at Campus Services. Please allow five business days for processing.

Confirmation of enrolment
If you need enrolment verification for an employer, a funder, or a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), you may request an official letter from Student Records.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, student ID number, and the information you would like to be included in the letter. Or if you have an enrollment confirmation form that you need filled out, attach it to the email. Please allow up to 5 business days for a response.
NOTE: Confirmation of enrolment forms for government Student Loans MUST be completed by a Financial Aid Officer. Submit these forms to email@example.com.
Get your T2202 Tax Receipt
This tax form certifies eligible education amounts that can be claimed on an income tax return. NLC issues these certificates by February 28 each year.
Update your student records
If any of your personal data has changed, such as your name, address or phone number, you’ll need to update your student records.
Update your citizenship
If you were an international student and have now obtained your Permanent Residency or Canadian Citizenship, you may request an update to the citizenship status on your NLC student record.
To request your citizenship update, read and complete the Citizenship Status Change Request Form, attach clear copies of your supporting documentation* to the form, and submit to Campus Services (in person or by email to StudentHelp@nlc.bc.ca). Requests may take up to 10 business days to process.
*Supporting documents include: Canadian Passport, Permanent Resident (PR) Card, Confirmation of Permanent Residence/Landing Papers, or other official documentation confirming you no longer require a visa to study at NLC.
NOTE: a change in citizenship status may impact your tuition rate. Tuition rate changes are not retroactive, application fees are non-refundable, and admission deposits or tuition over-payments that result from a change in citizenship status will not be refunded until after the add/drop period.
