Student Services

Student Card

Your Student Photo ID card identifies you as a student at George Brown College, giving you access to many of our services and facilities. You should carry your Student Photo ID card with you at all times. For information on how to apply visit the Getting Started page.

To get your student card you must:

  • Be a registered “Active” student and have no “Holds” on your GBC account.
  • If you qualify, go to the closest George Brown College Photo ID Centre. You can avoid line-ups by taking advantage of George Brown College’s Online Student Photo Submission process. Please see a list of Photo ID Centre locations.
  • Your Student ID card is also a Library Borrower Card and a Print/Copy-card used for photocopying and printing in the campus Library Learning Commons.  To have your card activated as your Borrower Card, simply take it to the Library Learning Common Help Desk.

During the busy fall term the College arranges special photo-id sessions. See dates and times.

Proof of Enrolment Letters

A proof of enrolment, or certification, letter provides proof that you are a registered George Brown student. A proof of enrolment letter is required for a variety of application processes. Requesting a proof of enrolment letter is simple:

  • Complete the proof of enrolment letter request form.
  • Submit the form to the International Centre. This can be done by email at, by mail or in person.
  • Your proof of enrolment letter will be ready within two business days of the International Centre receiving your request form. If you apply prior to the withdrawal deadline, your proof of enrolment letter will be issued to you only after the withdrawal deadline has passed.
  • Once it is ready, you may pick it up from the International Centre’s front desk during regular business hours. Or you may request for it to be sent to Casa Loma for pick-up at Room D313 on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
