Our Best Answer - How can I get my student ID?

What is My Student ID

Search your e-mail and check the spam folder for a copy of the SMC Welcome letter. This letter includes your Student ID and default password.

How to Recover My Student ID

You can recover your SMC ID # on Corsair Connect. You will need to provide personal information and answer two of the "secret questions" you setup when you initially setup your network account.

You may always visit the Admissions and Records Office during office hours to retrieve your ID number. Bring a valid photo ID.
