This means that you cannot be issued a card if you are not currently registered for classes. This is true even if you are planning on registering for future classes. Students receiving their ID prior to the start of the semester and/or before their scheduled new student orientation must bring a copy of their student schedule.

Where and what to bring - The SpartanCard is issued by the SpartanCard Office. You must bring an official government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, international passport, military ID, etc.), no copies of IDs will be accepted, no exceptions.
