Before an MWCC Student Photo ID can be issued we must verify your identity. In order to do this you will need to attend one of the scheduled ID Verification Sessions via Zoom. Please refer to the schedule below for details:

Please attend one of the above sessions and have your current state issued ID ready to be shown. When you join you will remain in the "waiting room" until it is your turn and you are allowed in.
