Who can submit a photo online for their CrimsonCard?
IU faculty, staff, and students who have never had an IU ID, including a CrimsonCard or legacy ID card (CampusAccess, Jagtag, Wolftag, etc.) can submit a photo online. Students who have been accepted to IU can also submit a photo before attending orientation.
Employees and students who already have a CrimsonCard, or other IU ID, must visit a CrimsonCard office to take a new photo when receiving a card.
