After you arrive

Step 1: Enrol in classes

Step 5: Grab your student card

Your student ID card is essential in identifying you as a UniSA student. Once you have enrolled into your first year of study, you can go to myID to upload a picture and order an ID card. When you ID card is ready you can collect from your home campus or have the card posted to you if you are an external student.

Step 6: Explore support services
