Digital students IDs and credit books

Important Update for Students!

From April 25, 2024, to December 31, 2025, an experiment will be launched in Russia to transition student IDs and credit books (grade transcripts) to electronic format. 📱

🎓 What does this mean for students?

Student IDs and grade transcripts will be available in the form of a QR code in the personal account on the public services portal of the Russian Federation - Gosuslugi and in the mobile application. With these, students will be able to:

- Access educational institutions;

- Purchase discounted tickets for transportation, theaters, museums, cinemas, and concert halls.

👉 Noteworthy: Traditional paper documents will also remain valid, allowing everyone to choose the option that suits them best.
