New student online photo submission is open!
From May 17 through July 22, new UIUC students can use SubmitMyPhoto to receive their i‑card by U.S. mail. Springfield and Chicago students should refer to their ID Center’s page.
Do you qualify for mailing?
You must meet all four of the following conditions to get your i‑card by mail:
- You are brand new to the University of Illinois System, meaning you have never had an i‑card, library number, or University of Illinois ID before.
- You're eligible to register in the current or future term.
- You're taking classes on campus for credit.
- You have a residential U.S. address where you personally have been receiving mail. Expect up to 10 business days after mailing for your i‑card to arrive.
All who are eligible for an i‑card will have a chance to get one!
Students who use SubmitMyPhoto after July 22 and those who do not meet the conditions for mailing may pick up their i‑cards at their ID Center.
For eligible employees and returning students, SubmitMyPhoto continues to be open for on-campus pickup.
