Submit Your NYUCard Photo Online

NYU Card Photo Upload is available to start accepting photos for summer term 2020 students, fall semester 2020 students, and summer 2020 associates as of April 1, 2020.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Incoming students should not come to campus during the summer to get their NYUCard. Summer classes are online, remote leaning. Card Center locations in New York City are currently closed and will reopen August 31, 2020. On or after that date you can come to the Card Center to pick-up your NYUCard. For security reasons we are unable to mail NYUCards.

Getting your NYU photo ID — known around campus as your NYUCard — is now easier than ever. Starting here, you can now get your NYUCard in three easy steps.

Before you upload your photo, please make sure you have activated your NYU email. Learn how!
