I.D. Card Guidelines

Photos must comply with the guidelines listed below. Selfie photos must be submitted from the GET app on a mobile phone. Students who are unable to submit a selfie from a mobile phone must attend a scheduled Pepperdine Orientation Event to have a standardized ID photo taken. 

Selfie Guidelines

The system will reject photos that do not comply, and you will need to submit a new photo. From within the GET app, take your photo with your cell phone's camera following these guidelines:

  • Photo must show head and shoulders of just you. Think passport or driver's license style.
  • Your photo must be of you and no one else. No photobombing or group selfies, please.
  • Your head must face the camera directly with your full face in view, centered in the frame. No side profile selfies.
  • Please remove sunglasses, hats, and anything else that obstructs the view of your face. Exception: items used for religious purposes.
  • You must use a plain white, off-white, or light blue background.
  • You must submit a color picture: no black-and-white or filtered photos.
  • You must crop your picture as a square image.
