Hill Card Photo Requirements

Please note: A request to change your photo is a request to replace your Hill Card. If you do not want to pay for a new Hill Card, which costs $25, please do not upload a new picture.

Uploading an Acceptable Photo (Under 1 MB)

You can use an existing digital photo, scan in a school picture or passport-type picture, or take a new picture with a digital camera or smart phone. The photo you provide must be easily recognizable as you, and conform to the requirements noted below. Photos larger than 1 MB will not upload.

Avoid issues that make your photo unacceptable:

Campus Police has a checklist of things that make a photo obviously nonconforming. Your photo won't be accepted if:

  • Your face is not visible or recognizable.
  • One or both of your eyes are not visible or blocked (for example, if you are wearing sunglasses).
  • Multiple faces are shown in the photo.
  • Poor quality makes your photo unrecognizable.
  • You are wearing a hat or head covering (that is not worn for religious purposes).
  • Your photo has been tampered with or digitally altered.

Avoid these common mistakes:

  • Some or all of your head is cut off in the photo.
  • You are shown in profile or three-quarter view so only part of your face can be seen.
  • Your photo was taken too close up or from too far away.
  • Your photo is too blurry or light. 

Photos must be in one of these file formats:

  • .jpg
  • .gif
  • .png
