The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is the only internationally recognized proof of full-time student status issued in over 130 countries. This card allows you to prove your student status worldwide, as well as gain access to over 150,000 discounts and benefits. UNC Charlotte students are not required to purchase the ISIC, but are encouraged to do so. ISICs can be purchased through the Office of Education Abroad.
To purchase an ISIC, please complete the following steps:
- Fill out the ISIC form here
- Submit a payment in the amount of $25.00
- Once the Office of Education Abroad receives your completed ISIC form and your payment, OEA will then submit your information to the ISIC organization for processing. Within 1-3 business days you will receive an email from ISIC prompting you to upload a digital, passport-style ID photo. You should then expect to receive your ISIC in the mail at the address you provided in your ISIC form within 10-15 business days after you upload your photo.
It is recommended that students order an ISIC card at least 4 weeks prior to their departure date.
