Online Photo Submission Now Available!

November 6, 2019

Photo Upload is now available for Spring Orientation Participants and Other Incoming Students
Why use Photo Upload you ask?  Well....

  1. You get to choose your own photo!  If you don't submit your photo online, you will have to go to the UCard Office  and have your photo taken.  Most students much prefer taking a relaxed photo at home rather than having their photo taken after a long, hot (and sometimes rainy!) orientation day.
  2. You don't have to wait in line!  Simply upload your photo, check your email to ensure that it was accepted, and then pick up your UCard when you come to campus.  What could be easier?
  3. You could win some money!  If you attending an NSO orientation session, the UCard Office awards $50.00 (deposited directly to the winner's UCard debit account) to one lucky winner from each orientation session.  All you have to do to qualify for the drawing is successfully upload your photo and have it approved prior to coming to campus.
  4. Please Note: Photo's must be on a "Solid" White Background.  Photos. taken in front of a White door with Panels or white block wall with lines will be rejected.

Now that you know why you should use Photo Upload, head to the Photo Upload Instructions Page to get started!
