All UB students are required to have a photo identification card. Save the hassle of having it taken on campus and send us your selfie!

IT'S EASY!

We accept the following selfie submissions:

  • Upload a photo from your computer.
  • Take a photo with your webcam.
  • Take a photo with your mobile device.
  • Your image must be at least 1kb and at most 1mb.

SELFIE CHECKLIST

Make sure you pass our selfie regulations:

  • Does the selfie identify you as a person? It's your selfie after all!
  • Are you looking straight at the camera? Side profile selfies are out of style!
  • Is your background a light, neutral color? No distracting backgrounds, please!
  • Is your selfie in color? Save that B&W filter for Instagram!
  • Are you free from red eye or reflections? Who uses flash anyways!?
  • Did you take off your hat or any garment that obstructs the view of your face? We want to see you clearly!
  • Is it a photo of just yourself? No photobombing or group selfies!
