Student ID Cards

How to Get a Student ID Card

You can obtain a student ID card at the Information Desk in the K. Ray Bailey Student Services Center during normal business hours. To be eligible for a student ID card, you will need to present a valid driver's license or other government-issued photo ID and be registered for classes.

The first ID card is free. If you lose your card, there will be a $10 fee for a replacement. You can pay for a replacement card online or in the Roberson Building.


Library Card

Your student ID card is also your library card. After receiving an A-B Tech ID Card, you should take it to the Holly Library to activate the card in the library's database. The library-activated photo ID card can be used to check out materials, use the research computers, and access reserve items.


Coman Gym Access

Your ID card allows access to A-B Tech's gym and weight room, located in the Coman Student Activity Center. Leave your ID with the student worker as you sign in and enter the gym.


Bus Discount

Currently enrolled students (curriculum, Continuing Education, and GED) can purchase a one-month Asheville Transit pass for $10 at the Roberson building, located at 93 Victoria Road on the main Asheville campus. A regular one-month Asheville Transit pass is $20 if purchased from the Transit Center. Bus passes are usually available for the month on the last day of the previous month or first day of the current month.
