Student ID/Library Cards

JST-SCU students are given an SCU ID card for use for the duration of their time at JST. If you cross-register at CAL, students will also receive an ID card from CAL. All JST students can also get a CAL library card.


Your SCU ID Card is used for Santa Clara University purposes, such as accessing the SCU library, SCU recreational facilities, and other SCU facilities. Please upload your photo to Blackboard when you receive the email request from SCU. You will pick up your ID Card from the Office of Student Life (Room 107).

To check out books in person from the SCU library, activate your new ACCESS card at the SCU Library Help Desk. 

To use library resources remotely, login using your SCU email name (such as melamb), password to logon (same as email) and your pin (last 5 digits of campus ID, which is on the front of your ACCESS card).

If you need a replacement card, contact Paul Kircher,

GTU Library Card

Your SCU ID Card is also your GTU Library Card. After you register for classes, visit Jim Oberhausen, JST Registrar, for a semester validation sticker. Each semester that you are enrolled in classes, you will need a new sticker to activate your card. The first time you check out books, a library barcode will be affixed to your card. The SCU ID card serves as a library card. The first time you check out a book, the GTU library front desk will put on a bar code. You will need a new semester validation sticker each semester that you are enrolled in class.

CAL Library Card

As a GTU student, you also have access to the CAL libraries. 

Once registered for GTU classes, you will get a semester sticker from the registrar. Take your ID to the Privileges Desk on the 1st floor of the Doe library to get a library card. (Privileges Desk hours)

When you have the card, you'll be able to check out materials and use CAL's many libraries. You'll also have on-campus access to their electronic resources such as articles and e-books. 

Note: only GTU cross-registered students (taking CAL classes) have remote access to electronic resources. You would then have to get a CAL student ID which you could use to login remotely.
