I am a graduate student. Can I get an ISIC?
Yes, as long as you are studying full time.

What do you mean by ‘full-time student’?
Being a full time student means that you take at least 15 hours of class a week for a minimum of five months a year.

If you are full-time teacher or aged under 26, you can also enjoy similar benefits to the ISIC card with the International Youth Identity Card (IYTC card) or the International Teachers Identity Card (ITIC).

I am not a student. Can I enjoy ISIC’s benefits?
If you aren’t a student, but are under 26 years old, the International Youth Travel Card (IYTC) is the right card for you.

If you’re a full-time teacher or professor, you can apply for the International Teacher Identity Card (ITIC). The IYTC and ITIC cards both offer similar benefits, services and savings to the ISIC card.
