Procedure for Obtaining Your Passport



You will need the following items:

    • State Certified Birth Certificate or certified copy of your last passport (You cannot use a hospital birth certificate)
    • Two (2) each 2"X2" passport photos
    • Picture Identification (Driver's License, State ID Card, etc.)
    • Money Order, Cashiers Check or Personal Check made out to "Passport Services" (You cannot send cash!!!!)

To obtain your passport photos you have a couple of options:

    1. Go to any photography business that advertises they do passport photos.

    2. Contact Academic Video/Photo Coordinator, Jeffrey Smith, at ext. 7232 to arrange a time.  You could stop by MCK 356 between the hours of 8:00 and 5:00. (It is best to set a time to assure someone is there to help you.) Price is $7 and also available for your spouse and kids.

*   For your visa you will need to bring your paperwork or know the size needed as many counties are different in what they require.

*   Pictures will be printed as you wait. (It only takes a couple of minutes)
