Student ID Card

The Southern Miss ID card is a PERMANENT card for each student.  The fall semester ID card will also be used for spring and summer semesters each year.  The same card must be kept and used even when returning from a previous semester.  Do not destroy, bend or tamper with an ID card. You must have a government issued form of photo identification (passport, driver's license, other college/university ID, military ID) when requesting a student ID.

   •   New Student Cards $15

   •   Lost/Stolen Cards $30 (Beginning Summer Semester 2023) 

Gulf Park campus students visit the One-Stop office located in Hardy Hall to receive your ID.
