RegistrationUpload your photo

We need your photo to be able to identify you when you come on campus, and to create your student card. Please upload your photo when you register online. 

Make sure you're happy  

Upload your photo and check you're happy with how your photo appears straight away. If it's blurred, the wrong way around, or just not right you should upload a new photo immediately.

Once you upload you can only amend it on the same day that you upload it. Your photo will lock overnight after you upload it and you won’t be able to update it again – so please check it right away and update with your replacement photo immediately if you need to.

After you've uploaded your photo you must:

  • check your photo is clear, meeting the guidelines and that you're happy with it
  • make sure that your photo is uploaded in portrait orientation not landscape (sideways) – please rotate your photo and reupload if it not portrait
  • if there is a problem, immediately upload your replacement photo – you can only amend your photo the same day as you upload it

Here's the deal

Your photo should be similar to a passport photo and must:

  • be a recent image of you
  • show your head and shoulders – no selfies please - boring, we know, but rules are rules!
  • be taken against a plain, light-coloured background
  • contain no other objects, people or pets - we'd love to see your pals and furry friends but this isn't the place
  • not have any shadows on your face or behind you
  • be a plain colour photo - no black & white or other filters - save it for Instagram please!

In your photo you must:

  • be facing forward and looking straight at the camera - let's see those lovely faces
  • have your eyes open and visible
  • not have hair covering your eyes
  • not be wearing hats or sunglasses  

If you haven’t submitted during online registration, you can still submit your photo through Pegasus:

  • log into PEGASUS (using your username and password)
  • click on the Personal tab
  • click on Maintain Personal Details
  • click on Upload Your Photo. There’s onscreen help available to take you through the process
