Registration Photo Tips for Educators

beginning of content:

Some students may need help with registration, particularly photos. Here are some ways you can support them:

  • Find out if you can get digital copies of student ID photos.
  • Ask the yearbook staff or photography students to help take photos.
  • Snap a picture with your phone and share it with the student.
  • Team up with class advisers or community groups to arrange a photo-taking event.
  • Help students registering by mail find a drugstore or copy shop that offers photo printing.

Taking an Acceptable Photo

Without a photo ID and an acceptable photo on their Admission Ticket, students will be turned away from the test center.

Important:

Photo Requirements

To be sure students upload acceptable photos, view examples and read all photo requirements.

Tips for meeting photo requirements:

  • Take pictures against a blank wall, and get close enough (or zoom in) to capture just the student’s head and shoulders.
  • Keep the lighting balanced to avoid glare or shadows.
  • Suggest that students wearing eyeglasses tilt the frames down slightly so that their eyes aren’t obscured by glare.
  • Deliver by email or thumb drive.
