Submit a photo for your HuskyCard

Incoming Fall students will need to have an approved photo on or before August 1 to ensure a preprinted card for Move-In Weekend.

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). You can crop or rotate a photo within Google Photos or another image editor of your choice.

Once you have your photo ready, log in to with your Michigan Tech account name and password. Then select Self Service > HuskyCard Photo. You will receive an email when a staff member reviews your photo.
