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.
