Authenticating Your Identity

All students, including those who enroll in a distance education courses at Southern Adventist University for the first time, are required to authenticate their identity at the time of initial registration in their first semester at Southern. The student may accomplish this using one of the following options:

  1. Authenticate in person at Southern Adventist University by obtaining an ID card, or
  2. Authenticate online with Southern’s preferred identity verification partner.

You will receive an email if you are required to authenticate your ID.
