Photo Submission Requirements and Tips

  • JPEG file, max 5MB file size
  • Ask a family member to take your photo with a smartphone, or digital camera if you have one. No selfies please, since your face will look distorted in a selfie.
  • Choose an outdoor location with even light. Use an area in shade or take your photo on a cloudy day. If it’s too bright and sunny outside, try sitting inside a car.
  • Double-check backgrounds and eliminate any distractions.
  • Take a vertical photograph, or crop your photo to a vertical orientation. Please leave room in the photo above your head and crop to just below your shoulders.
  • If you are not wearing a cap and gown in your photo, feel free to dress up and make your photo feel special. Watch out for collars that don’t lie flat or wrinkled clothing. Solid colors are often best for portraits.
  • If you would like to wear a cap and gown, please place your order through SCSU Bookstore.
