Can I have my ID card mailed to me?

What if I didn’t submit my photo online in time?

If you don’t submit your photo on time, you will have the opportunity to get a photo ID once the semester begins in our office, Student Accounts, located in Green Hall, Room 119.

Can I change my picture later?

A new photo cannot be submitted online, however a new photo can be taken in the Office of Student Accounts. There will be a replacement cost for the new ID. The replacement cost is approved by our Board of Trustees and is currently $10.
