CatCard Online Photo or Selfie Submission

 

CatCard Online Photo or Selfie Submission

If you are a new UC Merced incoming first-year, transfer, graduate student, or employee/staff/affiliate, you are eligible and encouraged to submit your photo electronically for your official UC Merced CatCard identification card. A digital photo submission gives you the opportunity to obtain your CatCard faster during your scheduled orientation or when you are on-campus. You now have the option to request to mail-out your CatCard ID. All UC Merced students and staff are required to have a photo identification card.

IT'S EASY AS 1, 2, 3!

We accept the following selfie submissions: 

   Take a photo using your mobile device or webcam.

   Upload the photo from your mobile device or mobile device.

 

 SELFIE CHECKLIST 

Make sure you pass our selfie regulations:

   Are you identifiable in the selfie?
            It’s your selfie after all!

  Are you looking straight at the camera?
             Side profile selfies were so 2009.

  Please be mindful and properly crop your photo (samples below).
  Portrait orientated photos work best. Social media photos are not accepted.

  Is your background light, neutral color?
           The fountain is pretty, but it’d look better as your Facebook cover photo.

  Is your selfie in color?
          Sorry, no black-and-white…or even black-and-gold permitted.

  Are you free from red-eye or reflections?
          Save the flash for the paparazzi.

  Did you take off your hat or any garment that obstructs your face?
           We know Wisconsin can be cold, but we want to see you clearly!

  Is it a photo of just yourself?
          No photos with Pounce or group selfies, please!

 

Once you find the photo that you like, upload the photo.  Please allow 1-2 business days for processing. You will receive an e-mail once the review process is complete.

 GOOD SELFIES 

If the photo is approved, no further action is needed.

 BAD SELFIES 

If the photo is rejected, you will be required to submit a new photo.

 

 ARE YOU READY? 

 

Fix your hair, set your lights, and
