  • Use good lighting. Photos that are dark or overexposed will not be accepted.
  • The photo should be a centered and front-facing headshot (to the collarbone)
  • Unless it’s for a religious purpose, no hats or head coverings that obscures the hair or hairline
  • Prescription glasses may be worn provided there is no tint, no glare or reflection that obscures the eyes. Do NOT use sunglasses.

If your photo is not accepted, you will receive an email with an explanation and a link for re-submission. All communication from the Photo Submission Team will be sent to your Bronx Community College email address.

The Most Common Reasons Photos are Rejected:

  • The photo is too far away. Be sure to crop the photo so that it goes from the top of your head to your shoulders.
  • Exposure – The photo is too light or too dark.
  • The background is not white or a light color. Bright blue or red backgrounds are not acceptable.
  • Graduation photos. These are typically not done using a white, smooth background and are a very high resolution which will not upload.

Approved Bronco Card

Once your photo is submitted and approved, you will be notified by email and your new Bronco Card will be available in the BCC Mobile App.

If submitting for replacement of a lost or stolen card, there is a $10 fee.
