Photo Submission Example 2



  • Focus on the Subject – you! The most important element of the TigerOne photo is identification.
  • Have someone else take your photo.
  • Pick a location with good lighting and a simple backdrop.
  • Some cellular devices allow for a “Portrait Mode” that creates focus on the face while blurring the background.
  • Seek background elements that complement your features. For example, if you have dark hair, seek lighter background elements to highlight your identifying features.
  • FYI smiling is encouraged!



*Attention off campus students and employees: Once your photo is approved, send an email to  tigeronecard@clemson.edu with your name, CUID number, and the TigerOne liaison in which you are requesting us to send your TigerOne card.  (List of Liaisons can be found on our Contact page)



Clemson University’s TigerOne Card Services reserves the right to refuse any photos that do not meet our requirements. Failure to adhere to photo submission guidelines is subject to appropriate University action as deemed necessary. Any photo that violates University policy will be referred to the Office of Community and Ethical Standards and/or Human Resources.



* Important: Please remember to bring your valid government issued photo identification card to obtain your new Clemson University ID card.  (Examples: U.S. Driver’s License issued by DMV, Security/U.S. Green Card, Passport book or U.S. Military ID Card.
