Officially, expired ID = no ID. A birth certificate does not include a picture. There is no proof that you are the genuine owner of the birth certificate you present

Borrow the money to renew your ID. Its like 27 bucks. Or you could sign the check over to someone with a bank account. You should have got your ID renewed before it expired.

How about just depositing your check in your bank account?

You really should open a bank account so you can deposit checks without having to show ID and cash them. Many banks offer free checking for students. Pick a bank to open an account at, and use this check to start it.

You cannot
You will need a valid government or state issued picture ID to cash a check.

Borrow $20 or whatever it costs to go get a state ID at the DMV (not a drivers license, it is just an ID) Then, you can cash your check and pay the person back.

Don't you have a bank account where you are going to school? That would have helped in this situation. You could have just deposited the money in your bank account and used a debit card.
