We have recently updated our policies for verification of student identities. You will need to complete this process prior to beginning coursework at Florida Southern College. To satisfy this requirement, you must provide a copy of your government issued photo identification. You are encouraged to provide this identification in advance of your arrival by uploading a copy via your Student Status page. You will be required to provide your official ID when you arrive on campus in order to receive your FSC ID.

Upload ID to your student status page
Acceptable forms of ID include: state issued driver’s license, state issued photo identification card, or unexpired government issued passport. Deadline to upload is August 16 at 5:00 PM.
