All incoming and current Auburn students will begin receiving a new Tiger Card, providing convenience, contactless entry and security. 

New incoming students and students enrolled in summer in-person classes will be able to receive their new Tiger Card beginning Monday, May 24, and throughout the summer semester. Students who are on campus this summer should visit the Tiger Card office located in Foy Hall, room 261, between 7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m. to receive their new card.

With the new contactless technology, students will experience convenience when purchasing items, gaining access to approved locations and when attending campus events, including athletic events.

“Our research has shown us that contactless cards create an ease of use, protecting both the cardholder and merchant, while also introducing a new layer of security that will serve the university moving forward,” said Kevin Watson, director of technology for Student Affairs.

The new Tiger Card will be of no additional cost to current students unless a student has misplaced their current Tiger Card. In the case of a misplaced Tiger Card, students will be charged $25 to their student e-Bill.

Students should not discard their current Tiger Card as it will be required for students to turn in their old card in order to receive their new one.
