Students, faculty, and staff of RCTC are issued a photo ID card. The card serves as your library card and is also required for other campus services including financial aid, bookstore, access to athletic facilities, and admission to campus events. Students will need to bring (1) your RCTC Stinger ID number (2) proof of registration (i.e. your class schedule), and (3) one of the following: current photo ID's: a Driver's License, a State ID, a Military ID, or a valid Passport.
Online Education Student ID Cards
Students whose classes are entirely online do not need an ID card. RCTC students registered for online courses are welcome to come to campus to obtain an RCTC Photo ID card at Goddard Library (From 8-4 Mon-Fri). This is used to check out books, to buy books at the Bookstore, to access the Fitness Center, for admittance to sporting and theater events, and for free bus rides. If you never come to Rochester, there is no need to obtain a card. Access to our online resources including article databases, eBooks, and interlibrary loan is available using your STAR ID/Password.
Goddard Library Cards
Community members may obtain a Goddard Library Card. This card will enable community patrons to use Goddard Library including check-out of materials. We are not able to provide ILL support, use of library lab computers, access to study rooms, nor remote access to databases, e-books, and other electronic resources with this card.
When Does a Student ID Card Expire?
ID cards will expire when enrollment becomes inactive at RCTC. Our vendor contracts only allow us to enable access to Goddard Library databases, eBooks, eReference, streaming videos, etc. when a student is enrolled in a class at RCTC.
Replacement Goddard Library Cards and Student Photo ID cards are available at the Library Circulation Desk. There is a $5.00 handling fee for replacing a lost ID card. For assistance, please contact Goddard library by telephone at (507) 536-5388 or via email.
