Photo ID card
Hello! I have to send in a photo soon for my student ID card, however, i am unsure what they mean where they say they won't accept "scanned" photos. I really don't want to go out to shoppers or wherever to get a passport photo done, so i was wondering if i could send in a photo that i printed off my computer? or would this be considered 'scanned' ? thanks

I think they need actual photo I think a photo printed off the computer is considered scanned. I am unsure though

I did that last year for my photo ID and they accepted it, unsure if the rules changed this year (doubt it though).

Yes, I would believe that would be considered scanned. I tried doing that but my printer had horrible quality so I ended up just printing one from walmart and cutting out my face to post on the form.

you could also go to the office of the registrar and they will take a picture of you and put it onto your student card

Apparently it doesn't have to be a passport photo..there was a similar thread last week:
