HuskyCard photo

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not allowed to take your photo inside on-campus. Please contact us at or call 906-487-1111 during university business hours if you need further assistance.

Your HuskyCard is your official Michigan Tech photo identification card. Please submit a photo for your HuskyCard before you come to campus.

Submit a photo for your HuskyCard

Choose an in-focus, well-lit, recent portrait headshot—head and shoulders facing forward—that reflects your current physical appearance. Head coverings, e.g. hats or scarves, are not allowed unless worn for religious reasons. Sunglasses are not allowed. Use an image editing program to adjust the photo width to 350px–365px and height to 480px–500px. Save it as a JPG (.jpg or .jpeg).

Once you have your photo ready, log in to MyMichiganTech and select HuskyCard Photo Upload. We've also put together a video tutorial on how to upload your HuskyCard photo to MyMichiganTech. You will receive an email when a staff member reviews your photo.
