Tiger ID

What Is The Tiger ID?

The Tiger ID is the official form of identification for every Auburn University Student . It is used to check out books at the University libraries, gain access to buildings or labs and gain entry to University related events. The Tiger ID is also used to access the Tiger Club Accounts and Dining Plans once an account has been established.

Accounts for the required participation Dining Plan will already be established and funds will be available at the start of both Fall and Spring semesters. For more information on the required Dining Plan options, please visit the Campus Dining website at https://campusdining.auburn.edu/.

Flexibility and convenience with your Tiger Debit Card

Auburn University and Wells Fargo have teamed up to bring you the optional Tiger Debit Card with banking access. It can be used as a Campus ATM Card when linked to a qualified new or existing checking account from Wells Fargo.
