Online photo submission is a fully integrated feature of Transact eAccounts. The solution permits students and others to upload a photo from any web browser to be used for their official Purdue ID. Photo submission may be initiated through eAccounts using either the web browser or the eAccount app.

eAccount users require two-factor authentication at the West Lafayette Campus, while Fort Wayne users follow a slightly different procedure and those customers should follow instructions given at PFW Campus Credentials and Transportation’s website. 

Information on who is eligible to use the Photo Submission site  as well as photo requirements can be found at Transact Online Photo Submission is for ID Card Operations / Support website under Submit Photo. This site is not intended for existing customers who need to want to update an existing photo.

Online Photo Submission is a task on the New Student Task List for undergraduate students in their myPurdue online portal. Incoming students are encouraged to follow the dates on the New Student Task List for photo submission.

If a student or customer already has a photo on file, their photo will be declined. All communications about photo submission status are sent to customers via their purdue email address. Some common reasons photos are rejected and important reminders are also located on the ID Card Operations / Support website under Submit Photo (in the FAQ's)

Transact Online Photo Submission is managed by ID Card Operations / Support.
