UPLOAD A PHOTO FOR SKIDMORE ID CARD by June 30th
All first-year students are asked to upload a digital photo for Skidmore ID by June 30th, 2017 so that their ID card can be created before they arrive on campus. To submit a photo for your Skidmore ID card go to http://www.skidmore.edu/card/freshman-photo-requirements.php. Please make sure to use your username when you log in, not your full email. For example, Anna Burnett, the London FYE Program Manager, logs in with aburnett and her password, not her full email with @skidmore.edu at the end.
London FYE students must upload a photo to both the Skidmore Card Office and in their MyIESabroad account. The same photo can be used for both as long as it meets the photo requirements set by both Skidmore and IES Abroad.
