Guidelines for ID photos

  • You can use a digital camera or a scanned photograph as long as the picture is clear.
  • Pictures should be taken from a 3-foot distance in front of a SOLID background (preferably white or blue) and include the head and upper-torso facing the camera. Do not use a close-up of just your face. No hats, hair wraps, or sunglasses are permissible in the photo.
  • All pictures should be saved in .PNG or .JPG format (size: 800x600 pixels) using your 9-digit student number as the file name (i.e., 917123456.png, 91712356.jpg)
  • Do not upload copyright photos (those made by a professional photographer).
  • Submitted photos are subject to approval by the Wolves Card Office and may be returned if not approved.
  • The Wolves Card Office can NOT accept photos that are mailed via the US Postal Service; all photos must be submitted electronically per the above guidelines.
  • View this tutorial on resizing images. If you need assistance, many photo centers (like the ones at Staples) can scan and resize photos for you.
