Frequently Asked Questions
ISIC / ITIC Cards
What is an ISIC/ITIC card?
The ISIC card is the only internationally accepted proof of bona fide student status. The ISIC Association is the non-profit organisation behind the International Student Identity Card (ISIC), and has been endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1968.
The ITIC teacher discount card is the only internationally recognised ID for teachers.
You can apply for a card via your educational institution, the ISIC sales network in your country, or online.
How do I determine the validity of the card?
Card validity is always indicated on the front of the card, and extended annually through holographic revalidation stamps by your school/university. These are stickers that incorporate the ISIC logo and validity date. In the event that the validity expires and the revalidation stamp for the current academic year (ie. 12 / 201X) is missing, the card is invalid.
Where can I find the card number?
The card number is on the front of your card, under the photograph. It consists of the first letter defining the type of card (S-Student, T-Teacher) and 12 digits or letters.
I entered the correct card number, but it failed to verify. What should I do?
Check the validity of your card.
Check that the name on your My Alza account is the same as the name on your ISIC/ITIC card.
Make sure you have entered the correct card number without any gaps.
Who should I contact if I require further information?
