Headshot

  • You may submit only one file at a time. It cannot be more than 25 megabytes.
  • No selfies. Headshots must be clear, professional images of you, face forward, from the shoulders up, against a neutral background. Headshots cannot include other people (even if faces are cropped out), animals, any item that contains intellectual property (i.e., logos), or excessive glare or back lighting.
  • Your headshot must be in JPEG, PNG or GIF format. JPEG is preferred. File names must have the correct extension: .jpg or .jpeg for JPEGs, .png for PNGs, and .GIF for GIFs.
  • The image dimensions of your headshot must be at least 650 pixels vertically and 650 pixels horizontally at 72 dpi resolution.
  • Captions or photography credits cannot be included with your headshot.
  • You are responsible for securing any usage rights for a copyrighted image and may be asked for documentation of the copyright holder’s ascent.
  • Headshots are subject to review by Marketing and Communications and may be cropped or edited.
  • The university provides opportunities to have professional photos taken at various events throughout the year.
