Your photo is the most vital part of the submission process. We want the best YOU displayed on your VCUCard, but we also want to be sure we can clearly identify you. The VCUCard Office follows the U.S. Passport image guidelines as outlined by the United States Department of State.
The coordinator for your orientation will inform you when Photo Submission is available and provide you with the link.
New Student Orientation groups will receive the Photo Submission link in their Ram Ready online orientation.
Once your image is uploaded, you will receive an email confirmation with further instructions. In your photo approval email you will receive a link to complete an electronic ID request form. Once your form has been completed and processed the VCUCard Office will email you additional information about how you will receive your card.
VCUCards sent by mail will need to be activated before use. To activate your VCUCard, log in to myVCUCard.com with your eID and click "I Found My Card" in the right sidebar.
Any image submitted to the VCUCard Office will be used for identification purposes only. VCUCard reserves the right to refuse any image that does not adhere to the standards outlined below. If you do not adhere to these guidelines, your image will be rejected and you will need to choose a more appropriate image to re-submit.
If you currently have a VCUCard and are seeking to replace your image, you may be subject to a fee.
