Submit / Update your SUID Photo

Your SU I.D. card will serve as your official University identification and will provide you access to residence halls, dining centers, snack operations, athletic facilities, library privileges, vending machines, laundry services and the SU Bookstore.

Follow the steps below to insure that your permanent SU I.D. will be waiting for you at your residence hall or South Campus apartment check-in for the Spring semester. This process is for new students only, returning students should use the ID Card they have been previously issued.
