You will need to gather the following information:

The information you provide is compared with what the college has on record. If you need to confirm any of this information or have misplaced your student ID number, you can contact the Admissions Office, Advising Center, or your Advisor. Please bring some form of identification when requesting your misplaced student ID number.
