Step 2- BuzzCard eAccounts portal

Once you find the photo that you like, upload (1) your photo and (2) a photo of your driver's license or passport to the Profile tab via BuzzCard eAccounts portal.

Please have the photo of your ID ready BEFORE starting the submit process so your browser does not time out. You will be required to resubmit the entire package if we do not receive both.

1. Enter the photo upload tool. Use your personal email address, if requested.

2. Upload your photo

3. Submit and click “Next” to proceed

4. Submit your Govt Issued Photo ID (e.g. Drivers License or Passport)

Step 3 - Check Your E-mail

Please allow 2-3 business days for processing. You will receive an e-mail once the review process is complete.

Follow any instructions in the e-mail, as necessary.

  • If the photo is rejected, you will be required to submit a new photo.
  • If the photo is approved, no further action is needed.

Step 4 - Receive Your BuzzCard

Look for instructions from your New Student program on where to pick up your BuzzCard at move-in.
