Ordering your card

If you're a new student, you can order your student ID card online the day after you enrol in one or more subjects at La Trobe.

After you place your order, you'll receive a confirmation email to your student email address. You'll receive another email a few days later (this can be up to a week at peak times) to tell you if your submitted photo has been approved or not.

Please note: If you need proof of your enrolment, you can also use your Statement of Account.

Collecting your card

Please allow 3 working days for your ID card to be ready for collection at Bendigo and Bundoora campuses, and 5 to 7 working days on all other campuses (as cards are posted to city and regional campuses). Please bring a government-issued photo ID like a passport or a drivers licence. If your photo is rejected, you will need to use the link above again and submit a new photo.

If you have a question about your card please email us at

You must order your ID card before coming to collect it from the ASK La Trobe Help Zone at your campus.

Please note: Student ID cards on the Bundoora Campus can be collected from the Infrastructure and Operations office in the Agora (located next to the IGA).
