Handling Your Tiger Card

Guidelines for Handling Your ID Card

Your Tiger Card is a multi-functional card. It should be treated with care and steps can be taken to avoid damaging the cards functionality. Please adhere to the following:

  • Do not expose to direct sunlight
  • Do not expose to extreme heat or open flame
  • Do not expose to chemicals
  • Do not machine wash
  • Do not crimp, bend or twist card
  • Do not re-laminate
  • Do not immerse in liquids of any kind
  • Do not puncture
  • Do not hole-punch

If you damage your ID card, you do so at your own risk. If damaged, you will have to pay the replacement fee to have another ID card produced.

If your card is lost or stolen…

If you have lost your card, contact the Customer Service Center immediately at 1-866-348-3435 to prevent theft of the funds in your account. The sooner you report a lost or stolen card, you can reduce the liability of your loss and reduce the chance of losing your funds. You will also need to go to the Student Affairs office in the Ornelas Student Center for a new card.
