The DVC Connect Card is provided free to all enrolled students and is required for library checkout and identification purposes. Students may obtain their Connect Card at the Student Life Office in the Student Union building and the Library at the Pleasant Hill campus and at the Learning Commons at San Ramon Center (SRC).
To get your DVC Connect Card, all you need is proof of registration for the current semester plus an official photo identification (such as a California's driver's license).
The DVC Connect Card is a convenient and technologically-sophisticated card, containing a barcode and a magnetic stripe which is used to facilitate student interactions and enhance services such as library use, computer lab use, counseling and other campus services. The DVC Connect Card serves as the library card for students, faculty and staff. (A separate barcoded library card is issued to any community resident who shows proper identification and pays an annual fee.) You may add money to your Connect Card for printing in campus computer labs.
The DVC Connect Card which is provided free of charge to all enrolled students has a black and white picture. Effective Fall 2011, if students would prefer a color photo for their ID card, then they have the option of obtaining a color ID from the Student Union building at the Pleasant Hill campus for a $4 charge.
An optional ASDVC activity and discount sticker is available for purchase at the Student Life Office, Bookstore and Cashier and costs $8 per semester. The benefits of purchasing a sticker include a three percent (3%) discount on textbooks and other items from the DVC Book Center, free admission to DVC athletic events, and discounts from many off campus businesses (list available in the Student Life Office at the Pleasant Hill campus). The sticker is issued through the Student Life Office and SRC. The fee helps to fund student activities including club events, films, concerts, special athletic events, and campus enhancements. Fees are non-refundable.
New for Fall 2011 - the Student Life Office on the Pleasant Hill campus offers a "combo special" which includes both the color ID and the ASDVC activity and discount sticker for $10.
