Uploading Your Photo

In order to reduce in-person traffic and to better comply with social distancing guidelines, we would like for Brandeis students, faculty, and staff to upload their own photos to be printed on new Campus Cards. Photos must comply with the guidelines listed below. Selfie photos must be submitted from the GET Mobile App on a smart phone (found as "GET Mobile" in the App Store or Google Play Store) or through the Brandeis Login Page under WhoCash/Meal Plans.  Your GET login is your Usernet ID and password. For security purposes, we do not mail out ID cards.
