Student IDs

Illustration of front and back of a student ID cardYou must be currently enrolled in Lone Star College classes that have been paid for (or show signs of being paid by financial aid) to be eligible for a student ID.

We start making IDs for each semester on the following dates:

Fall semester: August 1
Spring semester: December 1
Summer semester: May 1

You can create your ID at any point in the semester, but sooner is better! When the semester ends, we will not issue a new ID unless you're enrolled in the next semester.


If you don't want to come to campus...

Request a library barcode using the online form. You will receive an email to your student email address (accessible through myLoneStar) with your barcode and PIN within 2 business days of your request.

We're currently accepting returns of non-electronic library items to the bookdrop in the Garage Entry Level lobby. If you have electronic items checked out from the UP library, please hold on to them until we open for returns. You will not be charged any late fines for electronic UP Library items while the library is closed.
