ISIC Revalidation

How to determine if your card is valid:

  • ISIC card is always valid for an academic year, thus from September of a one calendar year, to the September of another calendar year
  • Needs to be revalidated each year, preferably right before September
  • ISIC card is revalidated by two stickers, both of them are necessary:
    • UNYP round sticker
      • the most important - confirms your student status
      • always shows validity 9/20xx
      • eg. for the AY 2021/2022 it is 9/2022
    • ISIC rectangular sticker
      • always shows validity 12/20xx
      • eg. for the AY 2021/2022 it is 12/2022
Your ISIC card won't have the ISIC rectangular sticker if:

  • You are a freshman, and this is the first time you received a UNYP ID/ISIC card
  • You lost your card, and you just received a new duplicate of the card

Why you should revalidate:

  • Only revalidated card can prove your student status
  • Without revalidated card you are not eligible to student discounts
  • Yearly transport pass with student discount is available for purchase only between August 15th and November 1st

Best time to revalidate:

  • August
  • We DO NOT REVALIDATE during the Orientation week!


  • A complete registration for the academic year
  • Fully paid tuition for the AY or other financial arrangement confirmed by the Accounting Office

How to proceed:

  • Check if your registration for the AY is completed, (Registrar Office), and you are financially ok, (Accounting Office)
  • If so, send us an email to and arrange an appointment at the UNYP Library, (this applies only during September, after that, you don't need any appointment, just stop by,)
  • Bring your card to the appointment
  • Confirmed appointment=revalidation on the spot guaranteed

If you are starting the semester outside of Prague, and you are unable to come to the UNYP Library for the revalidation, send us an email to, and we will let you know, how to proceed.
