The Associated Students of Moorpark College (ASMC) oversees the sale of student ID cards. Many companies and organizations offer discounts to students, and money generated by the sale of MC student ID cards goes back toward funding student life activities hosted by ASMC!
How to buy a student ID card
An ID card can be purchased during fall semester registration for the entire academic year at $15 or for the semester rate of $10. Students who buy an ID card at the time of spring registration may purchase it for a semester only, as the year-long ID card is available only at the beginning of the academic year. A student who registers in spring but purchases a year ID at $15 will be produced a semester ID and directed to the Moorpark College Student Business Office for a refund of the $5 balance, as year-long ID cards can only be produced in the summer or fall for the current academic year.
Currently registered students can purchase a Moorpark College ID online via their MyVCCCD portal. Just log in to My.VCCCD.edu, click on the "Register / Pay" tab, navigate to the "Payment and Payment Plans" section at the top right (on a desktop; this section is halfway down the page if you are viewing on your cell phone or a similar device), and click on the link that says "Purchase Student Photo ID." Select the term for which you wish to purchase your ID card (you must also be registered for classes for that term) and click submit. This will add the $15 or $10 charge to your Student Schedule Bill, which you can pay by clicking on the ePayment button under the "Payment and Payment Plans" section.
Students who prefer to purchase their ID cards while on campus can visit the Student Business Office to do so. Check out the Student Business Office's website to learn their hours.
After you have paid for the ID card, bring your receipt (printed either from your MyVCCCD portal or from the Student Business Office) and another form of valid identification* to the Student Activities Office to have your photo taken and your ID card printed on the spot. (*We will accept any government-issued ID, such as a California ID card, a valid driver's license, a passport, or a previous ID from a former institution.)
If you do not have a printed receipt, you can pull up your Students Schedule Bill to show proof of purchase by following these steps: log in to My.VCCCD.edu, click on the "Register / Pay" tab, navigate to the "Payment and Payment Plans" section at the top right (on a desktop; this section is halfway down the page if you are viewing on your cell phone or a similar device), and click on the link that says "Students Schedule Bill." Select the term for which you purchased the ID card and click submit. This will pull up a page that shows the classes you've registered for, as well as the fees you have been assessed, included a student ID card fee.
The Student Activities Office is located in the Campus Center from the Bookstore, and it is open this fall Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and most Fridays from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
On-campus ID card perks

Free admission to MC athletic events
As an MC student, you can support any of our 16 intercollegiate sports teams at their home games, matches, or races for free when you show your MC ID card at the entrance. Visit the Athletics page to learn more about MC sports teams and to see their calendars.
Having an MC ID card makes it easier to sell back your textbooks
To sell your textbooks back, the MC Barnes & Noble bookstore requires that students present an ID that also includes their 900- number (MC-issued student identification number). An MC student ID card includes all the identifying information needed to sell your used textbooks back to the school.
Many MC offices require valid ID for their transactions
Many student services offices, such as the Student Business Office, the Bookstore, and Admissions & Records, will require identification in order to provide information to a student. Many of these departments will consider the MC student ID card to be a valid form of ID.
