The International Student Identity Card (ISIC)
The only internationally recognized student ID!
The ISIC is the internationally recognized proof of full-time student status, and is a student discount card in 70 countries, including Canada. The Canadian Federation of Students-Services is the agent for the ISIC in Canada.
As a member of the Federation, the cost of your ISIC is included with GSA membership; non-members pay $20.00 for the card. CFS is invited on campus to process the cards at various times in September. If you missed them, you can still get an ISIC card through Travel CUTS locations. There is one now located on the Brock campus - 3rd floor of the Student-Alumni building. For off-campus students there is also one on the MacMaster campus. You can bring your own passport sized picture, or TravelCUTS will take your photo on-site for a $10 fee.
The card provides access to many benefits, including student discounts on air travel purchased through Travel CUTS, up to 50% discount on Via Rail travel and a 25% discount on Greyhound bus trips. As well, reduced rates can be obtained for accommodations, admission to historical sites and museums and entertainment attractions.
