NOVACard/Library Card


The NOVACard is the student identification card.   It is also your library card, which you will use to borrow materials, and the card you will use to pay for printing or photocopying.

To get your NOVACard, go to one of the campus offices.  
Be sure to bring a photo ID and know your EMPLID (you can look up your EMPLID here).

When you are getting your NOVACard at one of the offices, you can add funds to your card's account if you think you will print or photocopy while on campus.
