SFAI Student ID Card
New students will receive their Student ID Card during Orientation.
Your Student ID card helps SFAI make sure that campus is secured to only students after hours—that is, when SFAI is closed to the public.
Your Student ID is also used to check out library books, audio-visual equipment, and purchase food at the SFAI Café.
