Students taking the SAT or ACT will now have to submit photos of themselves when they sign up for the college entrance exams and provide a photo-ID on test dates. The changes will not affect students who may not have access to government-issued IDs, according to The College Board.

The changes announced Tuesday come in the aftermath of a major cheating scandal in Long Island. Effective with the 2012-13 academic year, students registering online will now have to upload a "recognizable photo" of them which will then be printed in a "photo admission ticket" that test takers must present along with a photo-ID on test day.
