Your student Husky Card is your official photo identification card while attending the University of Washington and provides access to campus services, buildings, transportation, and activities.
Who can submit a photo online
New incoming UW Seattle and Bothell campus students are eligible to use this site to submit your photo online for your official UW Husky Card.
UW Tacoma students should not use this site for photo submission and instead visit the UW Tacoma website for information on how to submit your photo and obtain your card.
Transfer students between campuses do not need to upload a new photo, as your previous card will become active after you transfer.
Note: Submitting your photo online does not automatically initiate the printing of a Husky Card. Please be sure to visit the Husky Card Operations Updates page for specific information and instructions on how to obtain your card.
Step 1: Find a photo
You will need to take or find a recent color passport-style photo of yourself. Read the photo requirements below.
Along with your photo you will also need to submit a color scan or picture of your US driver’s license, state ID, passport, or military ID. If you do not have one, you may submit these three documents instead: high school ID card, birth certificate and social security card. Include the entire document and make sure the identity information on it is clear and readable.
Your government ID is used for identity verification purposes only. In accordance with UW's security and privacy policies, your ID documents will not be saved in any system and will be permanently deleted once your submission has been approved. You may alternatively choose to visit our office and have your documents verified, photo taken, and Husky Card issued to you in person.
how to save and name your photo
- Save your photo as a .JPG file, and do not exceed 500 KB.
- Name your file using your 7-digit UW student ID number.
