Students enrolled in online programs or who take exclusively online courses may request a Student ID card (SandDollar$ card) by sending an email request to sanddollar@tamucc.edu. The following information should be included in the email request:

  • Student ID number (A#)izzy_sand_dollar
  • Full name (as it appears in TAMUCC student records)
  • Mailing address
  • Daytime phone number

The ID card will not include a photo and will be valid to use with an accompanying government issued ID card (i.e. driver’s license). The ID card will be sent by the SandDollar$ office via mail to the mailing address provided.  If the SandDollar$ card is not received within 2 weeks, the student should notify SandDollar$ and a replacement will be sent at no charge. SandDollar$ will verify the validity of the mailing address prior to sending out a replacement card. If a student visits the campus, the SandDollar$ office will issue a standard SandDollar$ photo ID with proper identification at no charge.  If a student transfers from a fully online to a campus-based program then a student must obtain a SandDollar$ card.
