- How do I get a student I.D. card?
Once you have completed enrollment and paid all fees, you are eligible to obtain a student identification card. Your student ID card is used as your library card, to sign in at the Student Lounge & Gameroom, to access Central Texas College’s Sports Center and Natatorium and use computers in computer labs. Your first ID card is free and may be issued at registration or any time during the semester. The ID card section is located in the Registration building. You must bring a picture ID, your current class schedule or tuition receipt showing full payment with you. To replace a lost or stolen ID card, you must pay $5 to the business office in building 119 and bring the receipt to the ID card section during normal business hours. Please note that the misuse of your Central Texas College ID card may result in disciplinary action.
- I received a parking ticket on campus. Now what do I do?
Bring the citation to the Office of the Campus Police before the "appear by" date on the front of the citation to obtain an invoice to pay the citation or enter a plea of "not guilty" and submit a written appeal. Parking fines begin at $25.00 per violation and many times one citation has multiple violations. Failure to appear by the date on the front of the campus citation results in a forfeiture of the appeals process.
