If you're a Western Sydney University Online or distance education student, complete the external student ID card application form, available on the forms page or from any Student Central.

Follow the instructions carefully, particularly about the correct way to provide your photograph.

You can submit your form by:
  • Posting the completed form and photograph to Student Central, Western Sydney University, Locked Bag 1797, PENRITH NSW 2751
  • Visiting any Student Central location on campus
