Every entering graduate student is required to submit a recent electronic passport-quality photograph by June 1 to firstname.lastname@example.org in JPG format. Passport-quality photographs must be on a white background.
Note: Please save your photo as your student ID number.jpg (ie: 999999999.jpg)
Please include the following in your email:
- Last Name, First Name
- Student ID on your Admission Offer
- Academic Department
If we have any problems with the photograph you submit you will be notified. Please review the information below carefully so that you will understand our policy and the use of your photograph.
A copy of your photograph will be sent to the TigerCard Office who will create your official University ID which will be ready when you arrive on campus. Your University ID card serves as your meal card, allowing you to charge food at any of the dining centers on campus. It also serves as an access card to gain entrance to campus dormitories and academic buildings, the library, gymnasium, athletic events and other University activities.
An electronic copy of the photograph is also used to identify students in administrative systems. Your photo on this ID card assures that, if your card is lost or stolen, it can be reliably returned to you and not abused by others, with possible costs accruing to your student account. Academic departments may also use your photograph for other purposes at their discretion, such as a new student face board.
