UNK Card Photo Upload Instructions

eCampus / Distance Ed please note: eCampus / Distance Ed students do not pay the on-campus fees such as ID Card, Activity or Facility fees and therefore are not eligible for a standard UNK ID card. However, some Distance Ed students want a UNK ID card to receive discounts from local vendors, etc. These students can request a non-photo Distance Education UNK ID Card through eCampus. The card will have a stock photo where the student photo would normally be, no barcode, no mag strip, and no class so that the card will not work in campus readers. There is a $10.00 fee assessed per card. Contact Heather Rhinehart 308-865-8927, or by email rhineharthj@unk.edu.

On campus students submit your photo online or using your smartphone, please follow all of the instructions carefully:
