Electronic Student Identity Card
What is ELS?
ELS (Electronic Student Identity Card) is an identification document of the student.
It meets the requirements set out in the Ordinance of the Minister of Science and Higher Education of September 14, 2011 in the law of documentation for the course of studies (Journal of Laws No. 201, item 1188, as amended). It is equipped with a contact and proximity interface.
The right to its possession is granted to university students up to the date of graduation, suspension of student rights or deletion from the list of students. The validity of the card is confirmed every semester by updating the data in the electronic system and placing the hologram in the marked fields.
The personal data of its owner are printed on ELS: name, surname, PESEL number, address, album number (index). The same data is stored electronically in the memory of the ID card. The card also stores information about the expiration date of ELS, which is visually marked by holograms placed on the back. Holograms are useful wherever it is not possible to read the electronic information gathered on the card - for example when checking tickets on the train.
