ID Photo Upload Info

A page within University Centers

New to UWL?

All Students, Staff, and Faculty have the option to submit a photo for their Eagle ID, this is a great time-saver. An additional bonus is that you get to choose the photo that will be on your Eagle ID.

Anyone who does not submit an approved photo will have their photo taken in the Eagle ID/Dining Plan Office when they arrive on campus.

EAGLE ID PHOTO REQUIREMENTS:
  • Photo must be in color.
  • Photo must be of just you—no other people, pets, or objects.
  • Photo must be centered, upright, and a full-face view with your eyes open and nothing touching your face.
  • Photo must be from just above your head to just below your shoulders.
  • Photo background must be a solid, light color - no scenery or busy patterns.
  • No hats, sunglasses, headphones, or other accessories are allowed in the photo—head coverings are only allowed if they are worn daily for religious purposes.
  • No filters, senior portraits or photoshopped photos.
