For NEW (First-Term) Yale University Students ONLY
Yale University requires that all students be issued an official Yale University photo identification card. You will need this card to gain access to residential colleges, dormitories, dining halls, libraries, recreational facilities and other University buildings and services.
In order to have your University ID card ready for you upon your arrival on campus, you will be requested to electronically submit a color PASSPORT PHOTO. If a Passport Photo is not possible, you may submit a color snapshot showing a full front view of your head and shoulders. You will also have the option of mailing a photo in lieu of an electronic upload.
Please prepare your photo to match these requirements:
This photo will be your permanent Yale ID card picture throughout your time at Yale. Please keep this in mind when selecting your photo.
Please submit your photo as soon as possible but no later than May 31st.
