Online ID Photo Submission

Your Student ID will be used to access almost all the services Acadia has to offer you. It has your picture your student information and will give you access to services at the gym, library, Students’ Union Building, and discounts at some stores and services in Wolfville. Your Student ID is also your key to your residence building and your room if you live on campus. Your Student ID is also used for any Meal Plan option you have selected whether you live on or off campus.

The easiest and most stress-free way of obtaining your Student ID card is by sending your photo online to Safety and Security NOW before you arrive and picking it up when you get here. This will save you time by avoiding the lineups of students who haven’t done this ahead of time that we often experience on Arrival Day. To submit your photo go to central.acadiau.ca/accounts and log in using your Acadia Central username and password. Click on "Axcess Card Picture Upload" and read over the guidelines to make sure your picture will be appropriate. To help-out, included is an example of a photo with some of the guidelines. 

Once you have completed these steps and your photo has been approved, your card will be waiting for you to pick up and activate on Arrival Day (September 1st) in Fountain Commons. If you pick up your card before Arrival Day, you will need to bring your card to Fountain Commons on Arrival Day to get it activated. Also be sure you bring a piece of photo ID with you so our staff can be sure the right person is picking up your Student ID.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on September 1st!
