No IDs are processed on Monday and Friday.

 

Planning Education & Research have implemented a new process with the issuing of Stroger ID badges.  The students will not have to go to Human Resources to have an ID picture taken.  Instead, a Stroger student access card will be issued to the student from their program coordinators.  Since Stroger ID badges will not have the student’s picture on it, their school ID badge will serve as their picture ID. There will also be a pink sticker affixed to the badge after the student has cleared all medical requirements with Luann Jointer. 

Effectively immediately, all students are required to purchase a clear plastic ID badge cover with a clip to display their school ID. (ID badge covers are available at the UIC bookstore).  Please don’t hesitate to contact Ms. Rita Coleman (312) 864-0392 for additional information.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
