COUGAR CARD ONLINE PROCESS ENCOURAGED FOR NEW STUDENTS
New students can save time and skip the long
lines this summer by taking advantage of the Cougar Card’s
online photo submission option. Before visiting the campus for
their New Student Conference, students have the option to upload
their own photo online and have their Cougar Card ready for pick
up when they arrive.
Last year, students waited in long lines during the conferences
to get their picture taken for their Cougar Card ID. They could
then pick up their ID the following day. This summer, students
registered for conferences will now receive instructions for the
online option ahead of time to encourage the convenient service
and reduce wait times during the conference.
Students will need to submit a photo through
AccessUH at least five days
prior to their conference date. If the photo is approved, the
student will receive a confirmation email from the Cougar Card
Office and the ID will be ready for pickup at their scheduled
conference. Cougar Card staff will be available during the
conferences to hand out the approved Cougar Cards.
To submit a photo, students must:
• Log on to
accessuh.uh.edu using myUH
• Select the Cougar Card icon
• Review the photo requirements
• Upload a photo
• Receive an approval email confirmation from the Cougar Card
• Pick up their Cougar Card at the conference.
If students are unable to pick up their Cougar Card ID the day
of their conference, they may pick it up the following day or
later at the Cougar Card Office in the Welcome Center Parking
Garage, Suite 101 during regular business hours. For more
