Submit Lancer Card Photo

All Longwood University students, Faculty and Staff are required to have an ID card. Our ID card is called the Lancer Card and is used for many important services such as building access, meal plan and Lancer CA$H purchases, admittance to Athletic events, and much more.

New students are permitted, and encouraged, to upload a photo online for their Lancer Card prior to attending Orientation. Please submit your photo at least two business days prior to your Orientation session. If you miss the deadline, or forget to import a photo, you will need to come to the Lancer Card Center during Orientation to have your picture taken in person.

  • Photo submissions are manually reviewed and can take up to two business days to be processed.
  • Once reviewed, you will receive an email stating whether your photo was accepted or rejected.
  • If your photo is rejected, please correct any issues and resubmit or choose a different photo.
  • If your photo cannot be used, or you do not meet the deadline, we will take your photo in the Lancer Card Center on Orientation day.
  • If you have difficulty meeting these guidelines, please contact the Lancer Card Center at or call 434-395-2715.

IMPORTANT: You will need to bring a valid photo ID (such as a driver’s license, military ID or passport) to receive your card.
