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. High school IDs will be accepted as long as a social security card OR birth certificate are presented with the ID, for those incoming freshman attending orientation. 
  • 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.
