International Student/Community ID Event

February 11, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Are you NOT a U.S. Citizen?  Do you NOT have an Iowa ID?  Does this make you feel insecure? 

There is an alternative to carrying around your passport! You can get a Johnson County Community ID, a secure, local option.
You can use the Community ID to:
*Open a bank account in participating local banks
*Confirm your identify when using credit cards
*Get a library card
*Interact with schools, city and county agencies, and law enforcement officials
*Participate in discount programs offered by selected community businesses and institutions
On February 10 and 11, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can apply, on the spot, for a community ID in the common area of the Old Capitol Mall.  The ID will then be mailed to your home address.  The ID only costs $8.00 and you will need to bring some proof of identity and residency with you. Please see the list below of what you will need to bring with you to the Old Capitol Mall.  If you cannot make it to the COGS Community ID event but still want to get an ID, please contact the COGS office.
