Q: What do the different numbers on my ID mean?


Your KSU ID card has three different ID numbers on it:

Sample KSU ID with Campus Card number, student ID number, and library barcode number highlighted

  1. Your KSU ID is a 9 digit number and is your student ID number. This number is located in the gray strip at the bottom of your ID card, between the Fifth Third Bank logo and your NetID. If you are asked to enter an instution ID, use your student ID number, as KSU does not have an institutional ID.
  2. Your library barcode is a 14 digit number, and the ID number that the library uses when you check out books. This number is located in the white section on the front of your ID, underneath your picture.
  3. Your campus card is a 17 digit number, and can be linked to a Fifth Third Bank account so you can use your KSU ID card as a debit card. This number is located in the black section on the front of your ID, underneath the KSU logo.

Your KSU ID also includes your NetID. Your NetID is usually the same as everything before the @ in your KSU email address. You can use your NetID to log in to access library resources off campus.
