Welcome to MSU's Online Photo Submission!

Please note that if you are an incoming undergraduate student, your eligibility to upload a photo is dependent on your advance enrollment deposit being processed by the University.


Are you a newly admitted student for an upcoming semester? Submit your Spartan Card photo today!

MSU's online photo submission site enables admitted students to upload a photo to be used on their Spartan Card.

By submitting your photo online, you:

  • Can have a photo that YOU choose on your Spartan Card (criteria)
  • Will save yourself time and stress - you will have what you need for move-in in the fall!

Your Spartan card is used for moving into the residence halls, dining, MSU events and much more.

We strongly recommend that you submit your photo online. If you don't, you will need to come to our office to have your photo taken and card printed, and the lines at the start of semester can be extremely long. Expedite the process by submitting your photo today!

When you pick up your Spartan Card, you must bring a government issued photo ID (US driver's license, passport, state ID or military ID) in order to pickup your Spartan Card.

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.
