NSO Photo Submission

MSU's online photo submission site enables students attending New Student Orientation (NSO) to upload a photo to be used on the student ID card, known as the Spartan Card.

In most cases, online photos must be submitted at least 3 business days prior to orientation. Exceptions occur near holidays and International student orientation. Be sure to check photo deadline dates.

You will pick up your completed Spartan Card during orientation. You must bring a government issued photo ID (US driver’s license, state ID, military ID or passport). If you do not have the proper identity verification documents, you will NOT be able to pick up your Spartan Card. If you have questions about these requirements, you can call our office at 517-355-4500, Monday–Friday 8:00 am–4:45 pm or email us at idoffice@msu.edu.

Your photo must meet the criteria outlined to be accepted. All photos are subject to approval.

The MSU ID Office will send an email to your MSU email address regarding whether or not your photo submission was accepted.
