*This Must be Your First U Card to be Eligible*
Photo Upload allows you to upload your photo and signature online prior to Orientation. Your card will then be ready for you to pick up at orientation, saving you time. Please have your photo and signature upload approved by the U Card Office a week prior to your orientation date to guarantee your U Card will be ready. We will notify you at your U of M email that your photo and signature have been accepted or if you will need to resubmit.
