mLegitymacja for BUT

mLegitymacja. mLegitymacja. Źródło: https://www.gov.pl
Students of Bialystok University of Technology can order electronic versions of their Electronic Student ID (ELS) via USOSweb and mLegitymacja module available there.

mLegitymacja is a mobile version of the document (Electronic Student ID) confirming student status and entitling to statutory reductions. The mobile student ID card is a fully fledged equivalent of the plastic Electronic Student ID card. This does not mean, however, that the obligation to hold a traditional document disappears. mLegitymacja is an additional option. It allows e.g. to confirm the student status in a situation when a given person does not have a physical document with them.

It can be activated using a free of charge mObywatel application available for Android and iOS users.

What is mObywatel?

The mObywatel app is a digital wallet for documents and services. Thanks to the application you can securely download and present your data, fill e-Prescriptions without entering your PESEL number, confirm the driver’s entitlements, check penalty points, present and check your car data and use your mLegitymacja.

Who can use mLegitymacja?

mLegitymacja can be ordered by a student who meets all the following criteria:

  • has an active student status;
  • has a PESEL number;
  • has an student album number;
  • has a photo in the USOS system;
  • has an Electronic Student Identification Card (plastic);
  • Electronic Student Identification Card (plastic) has been renewed in USOS;
  • the student’s personal data has not changed since the Electronic Student Card was issued.

It is worth noting that it is the student who decides if and when he/she will install mLegitymacja, as he/she goes through all the steps on his/her own without interference of the university administration.

How does it work?

Requests to activate mLegitymacja are successively transferred to the mObywatel system via the USOS API system. Once it has been activated, information about the possibility of downloading mLegitymacja will appear in USOSweb. This can be done thanks to the QR and activation code received. One mLegitymacja can be installed on one mobile phone only.

You can order your mLegitymacja in two ways – either through the Mobile USOS PB app or through USOSweb PB.


How to activate my mLegitymacja?

Every BUT student has the possibility to activate the card. To do so, there are 3 steps to follow:

    • Log in to your USOS web account USOS web;
    • Go to the „Student’s section” tab (top menu of the panel);
    • In the side menu, select mLegitymacja in ‘My studies’ (1);
