The ID card is the property of the University and must be retained for each subsequent term of enrollment. The card should be carried at all times and must be presented upon request of any University official. The card is non-transferable.

TigerCASH is a prepaid debit card system using the Tiger Card to provide a fast, safe, and convenient way to make purchases at multiple locations both on and off-campus. TigerCASH can be used for books, supplies, snacks, meals, and campus entertainment, but it does not allow for cash withdrawals. It is safer than cash and more convenient than checks or credit cards and can help reduce the risk of theft. If your card is lost or stolen, a call to the Tiger Card Office will stop access to your account until you replace your card. With TigerCASH, there is no minimum deposit or semester fee and accounts roll over from semester to semester until the student graduates or resigns. As long as you have a positive balance in your TigerCASH account, you will enjoy convenient purchasing power both on campus and off campus. Visit the Tiger Card Office Web site for a detailed listing of locations that accept TigerCASH at Deposits can be made at the Tiger Card Office, online at our Web site, or at the new TigerCASH kiosk, located outside of the Tiger Card Office.

More information is available at the Tiger Card Office, 207 LSU Student Union, or by calling 225-578-4300. By using TigerCASH you are accepting the Terms of Agreement.
