But I'm a distant student and I don't have a Chatham ID card:

2. Look for your name in orange in the top right hand corner of the dark gray band at the top of the screen (ex: Hi Jennie).

3. Click on your name and you will see all of your student information, including your Chatham ID number


I still can't locate my Chatham ID number:

My Chatham ID number isn't 6 digits:
