Understand the photo requirements

Your photo must be a passport-style photo and follow similar requirements as those listed on the U.S. Passports & International Travel Passport Photo Requirements Web page. It should look similar to the following:

  • Image of passport-style photoColor photo taken within last six (6) months


  • Plain white background only


  • Full-face view directly facing the camera


  • No senior pictures or posing allowed

Photos that do not meet passport-style requirements
will be rejected.

Edit your photo

Now that you have a photo that meets the photo requirements, you will need to edit it so that it can be uploaded to our system (i.e., GET). The photo you upload must be:

  • In JPEG (.jpg) format
  • No larger than 1 MB
  • Default viewable size of 225 X 150

Most cell phones have photo editing capabilities; however, other options available to you include GIMP, Picasa, the “Photo Tool” found on the U.S. Passports & International Travel Passport Photo Requirements Web page, or numerous other free resources available through a Web search.

Create a GET account

GET is the system that enables you to upload a photo that may be used for your DePauw ID card if it meets the photo requirements as noted above. GET is also the system that you will use to manage your Tiger Express account, meal plan, find participating out-in-town restaurants, and much more.
