Want to avoid waiting for your IDs to be processed?

Send your group's headshots to Tracy a week before you come and we can send them to security to be processed ahead of time.

The pictures should be headshots with solid backgrounds.

The pictures should also be labeled with the student's names- make sure the spelling is correct.

If this is not an option, you will need to arrange a time to get your pictures taken. Wednesdays are the best days to schedule this if you are a precepted student since security is open from 8 to noon for IDs.

If this time does not work for you, you will need to email security at and also Sonja Donaldson at and set up a time that works for both you and them.  Any questions feel free to contact Tracy at 414-266-4739.
