At the beginning of their studies, all Bar-Ilan students are given a Student ID that is used for taking tests, borrowing books from the BIU Library, getting discounted tickets from Agudat Hastudentim events, and more.
Versions of your Student ID number are also used as your login information for Bar-Ilan University’s various websites, however each site has its own login rules.
In order to get a valid BIU Student ID, you need to upload a passport photo by logging into Inbar, and clicking העלת קבצים -> העלת תמונה. Photos should be 600px x 600px, and no larger than 150Kb in size.
As soon as you finish your class schedule, your Student ID will be mailed to the address listed on file with Bar-Ilan. It takes approximately 30 days to arrive.
Students who do not upload their picture before registering for courses will be issued a pictureless ID – which will only work with a different valid form of picture ID. To get a new ID with a picture, you need to go to Mador Shema. The process and cost are the same as if you lost your Student ID.
Student IDs are multi-year. Each year of studies, you will be mailed a sticker with the current academic year to be affixed to the back of the card.
Replacing a Lost Student ID
In the event you lost your Student ID (or were issued a pictureless ID), you will need to order a new one. The cost for a new Student ID is 31 NIS.
There are two ways to order a new Student ID:
- Online via Inbar
Sign in, click “הגשת בקשת”, and choose "אישורי לימודים/ כרטיס סטודנט”. Note: If you need to add a picture, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a valid picture, your name, and Teudat Zehut.
- In person via Mador Shema
Go during office hours (with a valid photo, if necessary) and request a new Student ID.
The cost will be added to your next tuition payment.
