Thursday, July 29, 2010 | 12:01 a.m. CDT

The TigerCard is the official identification card for all students, faculty and staff of MU.

The card, issued during registration, is used for:

  • Entry to the MU Student Recreation Complex
  • Treatment at the MU Student Health Center
  • Borrowing materials from all MU libraries
  • Entry into residence halls and some rooms

MU students who are financially enrolled in full-time programs can also use the ‘Student Charge’ to:

  • Purchase items from MU Student Health Center facility-affiliated pharmacies
  • Cover photocopying and printing costs at Ellis Library and the following faculty libraries: journalism, engineering, geology, math sciences and medical center. The TigerCard can also cover printing costs at the following Quick Copy Centers in these buildings: Brady Commons, Engineering, Lewis & Clark and Veterinary Medicine
  • Charge purchases at the University Bookstore, Tiger Den and MU Team Store
  • Cover laundry costs at residence halls
  • Purchase ice cream at Buck’s Ice Cream Parlor (Eckles Hall; noon – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday and Saturdays during warmer months)
  • Purchasing meat from the MU Meat Lab (Eckles Hall; noon – 5:30 p.m., Wednesday and Friday)
  • Enroll in classes at the MSA (Missouri Student Association) Craft Studio and pay for material costs
  • Purchase flowers from Tiger Garden (2-34 Agriculture Building; 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday)
  • Purchase concert tickets from the MSA ticket window or the Hearnes Center

In addition to the Tiger Card, MU students have the option of including the Campus Dining Services E.Z. charge program on their TigerCard. According to Campus Dining Services, E.Z. Charge is a method of charging food purchases to a UM account. There are two options for E.Z. Charge - Pay-as-you-go (credit) and a decreasing-balance (debit).

E.Z. Charge can be used campus-wide to:

  • Purchase food at all Campus Dining Service locations
  • Purchase food and drinks from vending machines
  • Purchase food at the three campus Mizzou Market locations

What to do if the TigerCard is lost, stolen or damaged:

It is important to report the lost card by calling (573) 882-1871 during business hours, or (573) 882-2050 outside of business hours and weekends.

To protect the University Bookstore student charge, a student should also call (573) 884-2159. In addition to the above, all stolen cards should also be reported to the MUPD. It costs $15 to replace a card.

According to the Division of Information Technology, “normal wear and tear”, as determined by ID Office staff, does not require the above replacement cost. However, scratches that render the card useless are not covered as normal wear and tear.

Ultimately, a student should be careful with a TigerCard since it serves as campus passport, key and bank-card.

As long as it is treated with respect, students and their cards should have a long-lasting relationship through the end of freshman year and beyond.
