Your Student card
If you're enrolling with OUA for the first time, you'll receive your student card after the Census date of the study term (see Key Dates to check the Census date). Your student card includes your unique OUA ID number, which you provide when contacting a Student Advisor or attending an exam.
It's important to note that your student card is not a form of photo ID, so when attending exams, you'll still need to provide proof of identity such as a license or passport. If you require proof of study for Centrelink, you'll need to show your Confirmation of Enrolment letter.
