Photo upload for student ID Cards

New student photo ID process

All Linfield students are required to carry their ID cards at all times on campus. ID cards provide access to your residence halls, meal plan, events on campus, some buildings and other restricted locations on campus, such as department labs.

For new students only, online photo submissions for your ID cards are required before you arrive on campus. Your ID card will be available at check-in during orientation.

Instructions for uploading your ID photo

Your Linfield ID photo should be similar to that of a driver's license photo or passport. Keep in mind when selecting a photo to use, you will keep the same ID for your entire time at Linfield.
