Student Identification Cards

All students will be issued a free identification card which will be their official COS ID throughout their time as a student of the College. Upon payment of the student activity benefits fee at registration, students are issued a sticker on the back of the card which entitles them to participate in activities of the organization as long as they remain in good standing. Upon payment of this fee students also become official members of the Student Senate and are represented by the Student Senate Executive Board. Most activities which involve the student body as a whole are sponsored by the Student Senate.
