About SUNY Brockport ID Cards 

Your ID Card serves as your official university identification. Plus, you’ll use it as your dining card, library card, for access to resident halls, to buy books, to get into sporting events, and much, much more. All SUNY Brockport students are required to have an ID card, including those enrolled exclusively in online learning. 

To Request an ID Card 

Upload your ID appropriate photo from your phone to the GET app. 

Please Note: This is for new ID cards only. New students must be registered for classes in order to begin this process. If you are a current student, faculty, or staff and your ID card is lost or stolen we recommend that you deactivate your card until you either get a temporary card or purchase a new card. See “LOST” section for more information.

  1. Download the GET app from the Android or Apple store, managed by CBORD Group, Inc. 
  2. Sign in using your NET ID and password. This is the same NET ID and password you would use to access your Brockport email address.

  3. Once logged in, click on the menu icon at the top right-hand corner and click on "Settings". 

  4. Click "Upload Photo". 

  5. Snap your picture using the photo checklist below. When ready, click "Done" to submit.

Photo Checklist 

Your submission should resemble a driver's license or passport photo. Make sure your photo meets this checklist: 

  • Does the photo identify you as a person? 

  • You will be required to show a backup ID to prove your identity. Please make sure your picture is in fact, YOU! 

  • Are you looking straight at the camera? 

  • Side profiles are out of style! Center your photo as much as possible. There should be a small space between your head and the top of the image. Don't tilt the camera. 

  • Is your background a light, solid, neutral color with good lighting with no shadows on your face? 

  • No distracting backgrounds, please. Make sure your lighting isn't too dark, bright, or blurry, and there aren't any shadows on your face. 

  • Is your photo in color with no filters? 

  • Save that B&W and other fancy filters for Instagram and Snapchat! 

  • Did you take off your hat, sunglasses, and move your hair away from your face? 

  • We love your hat, sunglasses, and jewelry, but we love to see your face more. Please make sure your hair isn't covering your face. 

  • Your face is all we need!  

  • Please no hand gestures or facial expressions (other than a smile of course). 

ID Card Distribution 

  • On campus and off-campus students - ID Cards will be mailed to your home prior to your arrival on campus.
