If you are a new student enrolled in a degree program, you have two options for getting your ARTICard. You can avoid long lines during New Student Orientation by sending us your photo in advance, or you can come by the ARTICard and U-Pass office upon your arrival and have your photo taken here. Either way, you must present a government-issued photo ID or passport to pick up your ARTICard.

In Advance

To have your ARTICard waiting for you when you arrive on campus, just email us a color photo of your head and shoulders against a plain white background (like a passport photo). We cannot accept photos with colored backgrounds or objects in the background. Please do not use photo effects or wear hats or sunglasses in the photo. Email your photo to articard@saic.edu; we will not accept photos sent via mail. Please include your full name and student ID number in the email.

In Person

If you are unable to send us a photo beforehand, you can have your photo taken at New Student Orientation or visit the ARTICard office during regular business hours.

Checklist for New Students

  1. Email your head-and-shoulders photo against a plain white background to articard@saic.edu.
  2. Bring a government-issued photo ID to pick up your ARTICard.
