This may be a driver’s license, state ID card, passport, military ID, or other school ID. Your uploaded ID shows as Your Current Identification Document. This is NOT the photo that will be printed on your ID card, but proof of your identity.

4.  Submit a photo using the Upload Photo button (scroll down past your ID document). Once you select the photo you can crop it prior to submission. Don’t forget to hit Submit a second time after cropping window closes! The photo will then show with a notice that your file has been submitted. View the full list of photo requirements at our website. This is the photo that will be printed on your WESTCONNect ID card.
