Photo ID requirements
When creating student ID cards the University has a specific set of photo requirements that must be adhered to by students.
For students using CaptureME, the photo that you upload must:
- Be of passport photo quality and standard
- You must submit an original, unaltered photo (Note: a fee will be charged if your ID card needs to be re-issued due to an altered image)
- Be sharp and in focus
- Clear, even lighting (no dark shadows or reflections)
- Have a plain, light or white-coloured wall in the background
- Have eyes open and visible (not obstructed by hair or glasses, no red eye)
- For people who wear glasses, eyes must be seen clearly through glasses (no reflections)
- Show natural skin tones (minimal make up only)
- Show shoulders square-on and face looking straight into the camera (head is not tilted)
- Show a neutral expression with closed mouth (not laughing or frowning)
- No hats, headbands or other head covering (except for religious reasons)
- No posing or signage etc.
If you do not adhere to the above requirements, your student ID card will not be approved.
