UPC ID CardsWhile each partner institution may choose to issue
an ID card, you must also obtain a UPC ID card. This card will allow you access to
all SPC facilities and services. These include our libraries on all campuses, use of
computer labs and workout rooms. This ID card will allow you to have all the same benefits
as an SPC student. These cards are free and can be obtained in the UPC office, UP203, Seminole Campus.
Library Access Students can use their
UPC ID card to borrow books
from other Florida public universities and colleges and of course
you can borrow materials from SPC’s library.
Computer Labs & Wireless Network Students may be issued computer
accounts through the university in which they are registered. These
accounts are necessary for access to the "home" university’s computer system. Additionally,
students registered for partner university courses offered through the
UPC may use
SPC's computer labs, network & other resources by using their UPC
login and password, that is issued when they obtain their UPC ID card.
Rules and RegulationsAll UPC
students are governed by the same rules and regulations that apply to SPC
