The Student ID application is available for students at public universities and university colleges in Norway. This app can replace paper semester cards. The 8th of August a new version of the Student ID app will be launched.
About the app
The app is accepted as a valid student ID by transport service companies in Norway, among others. It is equal to the combination of a physical student ID and semester card. You will still need a student ID to access buildings and borrow books, depending on your institution.
For the student ID app to be valid, you must first pay the semester fee and register your courses in StudentWeb. If the app does not show any photo of you, a different kind of photo ID must be shown in addition to the app.
The app is available in Norwegian and English, and follows the standard language of your phone.
b) If you are already using the Digital Student ID
Important: The old version of the app will be shut down during the autumn. If you are using the app today, but do not download the new version, you will loose your Digital Student ID.
Notification about downloading the new version
If you are connected to the internett you will, a week after release, be notified that your user is no longer valid: "Sorry. Your user is no longer approved. Please logg on again." When you try to log on, a web page with a link to the app store to download the new version of the app, will appear.
If you update the information in the app, or if you log out and then in again, you will be asked to download the new version of the app.
If you are not connected to the internett, do not update the information in the app or do not log out, you will not recieve any notification about downloading the new version.
How to log on to the student ID for the first time?
Open the app (requires internett accsess)
Choose your institution
Log on with your username and password (given to you from your institution)
Read the declaration of consent and accsept (The app can only be used if you give your acceptance)
Read the terms and conditions and approve (The app can only be used if you approve the terms and conditions)
If you have paid the semester fee and registered, this information will be shown in a yellow box at the bottom of the page. The semester receipt is saved in the app itself. This means that the app, after logging on and registering your payment of the semester fee, can be used without any internet connection.
How to order semester card when you cannot use the app
If you don't have a smart phone or can use the app, you can order your semester card on the Studentweb. Log on to Studentweb, and enter "orders". Choose "semester receipt" and press "order". The semester card will be sent to the address you choose.
The colour of the semester card is light green during autumn semester of 2016 and spring semester of 2017.
