Online Photo Submission

 

MyPhoto is a web-based application for online photo submission.  Elon University uses this application to generate Phoenix Cards, the official Elon identification card, for incoming faculty, staff, and students.  It is an automated way to create ID cards that allows users to upload, rotate, and crop photos so that they ensure user satisfaction while also meeting university requirements.  Through this process users will avoid lines and save valuable time when arriving on campus.

Directions for submitting a photo are as follows:

1. Visit the website www.elon.edu/myphoto.
2. Review the Detailed Instructions, Terms of Use, and FAQs.
3. To begin choose: “Get Started Now”.
4. Log in with your Elon University Username, Password, and ID Number.
5. Review the guidelines for the photo.  Check the box at the bottom of the page.
6. Upload your photo (Be sure to use a solid WHITE background).  If your photo will not rotate, it’s okay.  We can edit it after it’s submitted.
7. If needed, crop and resize your photo.
8. Preview what your Phoenix Card will look like.
9. Congratulations!  You have now completed the photo submission process.
10. You will receive an email stating that your photo has been submitted and will be reviewed within the next few days. 

By submitting a photo for your Phoenix Card you certify that the photo is properly formatted to meet university requirements, is a true image of yourself, and may be used by the university for official purposes.  If your photo does not meet university standards, it will be disapproved and you will be asked to submit another photo.  If you have any questions about the terms and conditions you can contact the Phoenix Card Office at (336) 278-5436.
