Once submitted, our ID Center representatives will review your submissions within 24 business hours.

In order to have your photo approved, it must:

  • Contain only your head and neck in a straightforward perspective (think passport photo)
  • Have a background that is either plain white or blue
  • Not have any hats or head coverings; exception being those worn for religious purposes
  • Not include any inappropriate content

Please use Billy Bear's ID photo below for reference: 


Following review, you will receive an email determining your photos status. For those approved, you may visit the ID Center during business hours to receive your ID. For those not approved, please review the feedback included on your notice and please try again.

All approved ID photo submissions received by Sunday, August 9th, 2020 will be mailed to the home address on file with the University.

Any submissions received after this date, the ID cards will be available for pick up at the University Commons at the start of the semester. 


Since you are newly enrolled at the University, it is possible that your records are still in the process of being generated. If you receive a message while logging into GET concerning the status of your campus card account, this is normal. Please wait 48 hours and then try accessing your account again. Thank you for your patience. 

If you are still having trouble accessing your GET account, please feel free to contact us at
