ID Cards


Summer School students may temporarily experience difficulty logging into photo upload.  We are currently working on the problem and thank you for your patience.

Student Photo Upload is open and ready to use. Send us a color photo you could use for a passport. We need a front view of your face, cropped from just above the top of your head down to your collarbone. Your eyes need to be open and visible and no glare if you wear eyeglasses. The background needs to be entirely white (not tan, blue, gray), no texture, without shadows, no other objects or people in view. Upload application will only accept .jpg file format, size of 280 pixels by 296 pixels and maximum 50KB.

This photo will be your permanent Harvard ID picture throughout your time at Harvard. Please keep this in mind when selecting your photo.
