NDSU ID Card - Submitting an Online Photo

Below are instructions for submitting an online photo for your NDSU ID.

Photo Guidelines

Please keep the following in mind before taking/selecting your photo:
  • Frame subject with full face, front view, eyes open.
  • Make sure to have even lighting on the front of your face.
    • The most common reasons for rejecting a photo: lighting is poor and is creating strong shadows on the face, discolored or filter used.
  • Leave a margin around a full head shot when you crop your photo.
  • No hats, sunglasses, jewelry, or garments of any sort that obstruct the view of your face.
  • No other people or objects in photo.
  • Must be a color photograph against a plain background (can be a color).
  • Subject must have a natural expression and facing forward. We encourage smiling!
  • No copyrighted materials.
  • Only .JPEG images are accepted. MINIMUM SIZE= 500x500
