Security & Student ID


The entire complex is monitored by 24-hour security personnel on site.  All activity is monitored and recorded by surveillance cameras as well.  The school and adjacent museum facilities have restricted access.  Students are given a campus ID/keycard to access the school facilities during their tenure.  Campus students receive this during orientation, and online students receive this during their lab week.  The ID card is REQUIRED to enter the campus building.  Enrolled students arriving without their ID card will be denied access.  The fee to replace a lost, damaged, or stolen ID card is $25.  All visitors will be required to check in with the security desk and receive a temporary visitor’s badge.

NOTE: Please report a lost, stolen, or missing ID card to the school office immediately!
