ETBU Tiger Card

It is required that all students at East Texas Baptist University obtain and carry an ETBU Student ID (Tiger Card). You’ll use your Tiger Card often, so make sure to carry it with you at all times.  You will be able to use it to:

  • Receive financial aid disbursements (unless Student designates another financial institution)
  • Purchase food through your meal plan
  • Check out books from the library
  • Attend athletic events
  • Residence Hall and building access
  • Copy/print services
  • Optional access to a Herring Bank checking account with Debit Card capabilities
  • ETBU and Herring Bank have teamed up to offer you a convenient, one-card solution with the Tiger Card.

The Tiger Card is a multi-functional card, which allows you to open an optional checking account that offers free access to Herring Bank ATMs and to make no-fee purchases at merchant locations that accept MasterCard signature or pin-based transactions.  It’s the easy way to access cash and make purchases on and off campus.

A Herring Bank College checking account offers you:

  • No monthly service fee
  • Easy access to free Herring Bank ATMs on and around campus
  • Free access to online banking – check balances and view your checking account statement online from anywhere you have internet access at
  • Get paid faster – when you request direct deposit of your financial aid and/or direct deposit of your paycheck

Visit Student Affairs to get your Tiger Card.

Use your ETBU Tiger Card, your official Student ID, for all of your on-campus needs and to access your Herring Bank checking account.
