Replacing Your Tiger1 Card

Your Tiger1 Card contains vital information and is essential for access and identification while on the campus of Grambling State University. It is very important that you take every precaution to prevent it from being damaged, lost, or stolen.

You must be a fully registered student at Grambling State University, before receiving a Tiger1 Card. (**Your student fee sheet will be requested for verification**)

Lost or Stolen Cards
There is a $25.00 replacement fee for lost cards. Pay online by accessing your Banner Web account, click on Student, Student Account, Payment and Deposit Processing, and Various Student Fees. Click on the ID option and make your payment. (Tuition Transfer or Gflex Transfer is not an accepted form of payment)

If your Tiger1 Card is lost or stolen the Tiger1 Card Office can ‘freeze’ your card so it cannot be swiped for use, protecting your Accounts (i.e. Meal Plan, Tiger Bucks, Bookstore Allotment, Gflex, etc.)
