Tiger Card Policies

Privacy and Tiger Card Security

  • Any person who would like to receive a Tiger Card must have a valid LSU ID number.
  • Under no circumstances should you loan your Tiger Card to anyone. This includes family, friends and roommates.
  • You are allowed to have only one active Tiger Card at a time. If your current Tiger Card is not working, you may present the card to the Tiger Card Office to determine if you are eligible for a free replacement. Only cards with no physical damage will be replaced for free. Patrons who are both an employee and a student are required to use their active employee Tiger Card.
  •  If your card is lost or stolen, a call to the Tiger Card Office will immediately stop access to your account until you find or replace your card, or you can go to your online account to report a lost or stolen card.
  • Any University employee tasked with making Tiger Cards has the right to deny the issuance of a Tiger Card for any reason they deem necessary.
  • A government issued photo ID, such as a license or passport, must be presented when receiving your first Tiger Card. No exceptions will be made. High School IDs, bank cards, birth certificates, social security cards, etc. will not be accepted as forms of identification.
  • A Tiger Card may only be obtained by the student, staff or faculty member for whom the Tiger Card is being issued. No exceptions, including written consent, will be accepted.
  • Online students will not be able to create an online account and will need to e-mail the Tiger Card Office at Tigercard@lsu.edu to receive instructions on how to obtain a Tiger Card.

Replacement Tiger Cards

  • There is a $20 nonrefundable fee to replace a lost or stolen Tiger Card. You can make the payment at the Tiger Card Office, located at 144 LSU Student Union on the 1st floor.
  • Once your lost or stolen Tiger Card is replaced, it is permanently unavailable for use and cannot be reactivated at any time.


NOTE: Please be advised that the policies listed above are subject to change.
