Online ID Photo Submission

Welcome to North Park University!

As a North Park University student or employee, you can submit a photo online for your North Park University ID card.

You will be required to show an official picture ID (driver’s license, state ID, former school ID or a valid, unexpired passport) when you pick up your North Park ID card.

Please note: These ID cards are for our Chicago campus students and employees. If you are part of a program that is not held on our Chicago campus, please speak with your program director or supervisor regarding the need for a North Park University ID.
