ID cards and NetIDs

Identification cards

If you're a Cornell student registered for Summer Session courses, you may use your Cornell ID card.

If you're a visiting Summer Session student and are registered (i.e., have paid tuition) for a Summer Session course, please come to B20 Day Hall on or after your first day of class to pick up an ID Request Form. You will then take this form to the university registrar to have your picture taken and to receive your Cornell ID.

There is a $40 charge to replace a lost ID.


As a Summer Session student you will need to obtain a Cornell Network ID (NetID), if you don't already have one, to:

  • gain easier access to your transcript,
  • obtain your grades through the Student Center,
  • access library services and Blackboard/Canvas,
  • use Cornell's network services, including e-mail,
  • set up mail forwarding,
  • enroll in the emergency notification system
  • complete online summer evaluations, and more.

To get your NetID:

  • When completing your course enrollment form, please answer "yes" to the question "May we send occasional text messages to your cell phone?"
  • If you're studying on campus, take your Cornell ID to the IT Service Desk, located in Room 121 of the Computing and Communications Center (CCC), 607.255.5500. It's open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • If you're studying off campus, contact the the IT Service Desk to begin the process.
