Photo ID

Submitting a Photo for the Student Identification Card (The Fenway Card)
Students will save a world of waiting and frustration if their student identification cards are ready to go at check-in for Wentworth Opening Week. In order for your ID to be ready for check-in, you must submit a photograph prior to your arrival. Your check-in will be delayed if you have to stop to have your photo taken and ID printed.

The student ID card is used for purchasing books and meals, using vending machines, doing laundry, library use, and gaining access to residence halls and designated studio areas on campus. Submitting a photo for the ID card prior to moving on campus will save students from waiting in line to have their picture taken on move-in day.

There are three options for submitting a student photo:
