  2. The Student Identity Card is for identification purposes at City University. The visual data, including validity dates shown on the card, are for reference only. Official student data reside in the university student record system and will be updated in line with changes to student status. Service providers on campus will verify the data on the card against the student record system to determine eligibility for various university services.
