Please note, it's important to follow all of the steps below to take and upload a photo for your Talon Card. Please make sure you have set up Duo authentication before attempting to submit a photo as you will need access to your KSU email account. If you have questions, please email email@example.com. Before you start the online photo submission process, compare your photo with the examples on this page. Does yours look like the acceptable pictures? If not, retake it to avoid having to repeat the process later.
Dual Enrollment students should contact the Talon One Service Center at 470-578-8663 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment for their Talon Card rather than submitting a photo online.
Navigate to onlinephoto.transactcampus.net. Enter your KSU email address and click the "Request Access" button. Note: You must enter a KSU email address or you will receive an error message.
Log in to your KSU email account and open the email from KSU Talon Card Services with the subject "Here is the Online Photo Submission login link your requested." Click the "Submit your photo" link within the email.
Accept the CloudCard system's Terms of Service before continuing.
Choose the file type to upload.
Select your photo. Click "Submit & Sign Out." If your photo does not meet the minimum requirements, you must choose a new one before it can be submitted.
Please allow up to 5-7 business days for Talon Card Services to email you confirmation of your photo's acceptance. Watch your KSU email for initial feedback from the Helper Bot. The Helper Bot will provide instant email feedback based on the built-in photo grading scale. If the photo has too low of a score, the email will provide directions on how to submit an updated photo.
Once approval of the photo (by the Talon Card Services team) is granted, you will receive an official final approval email.
If you need to remove the background from your photo, we suggest using the Background Eraser app, available in both the App Store and Google Play Store.
All: Please bring a valid (not expired), government-issued photo ID to claim your Talon Card.
Important Pick Up UpdatePlease note Talon Card pickup will be unavailable between Tuesday, December 13 and Monday, January 2. We will resume printing Talon Cards in the Kennesaw and Marietta Talon One Service Centers starting Tuesday, January 3.
If attending Orientation: Once your photo has been submitted and officially approved, we will print your Talon Card and have it ready for you to pick up during your Orientation. The $14 first student ID fee is incorporated into the cost to attend Orientation.
If not attending Orientation: Once your photo has been submitted and officially approved, you may come to the Talon One Service Center to pick up your Talon Card. A $14 first student ID fee will be charged to your Owl Express after pick up.
All employees will take their photo and receive their Talon Card during their New Employee Orientation (NEO). If you do not attend NEO, you can come to any Talon One location to take your photo and receive your Talon Card.
