Tiger Card

What Is A Tiger Card?

Tiger Card is the official Auburn University Student ID card. 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 Card is also used to access the Tiger Club Accounts and Dining Plan once an account has been established. Accounts for the required participation dining plan will already be established and funds will be available from the first day of class.

Flexibility and convenience with your linked Tiger Card

Auburn University and Wells Fargo have teamed up to bring you the Tiger Card with optional banking access. It is your official student ID for campus privileges, and can also be a Campus ATM Card when you link it to a Wells Fargo checking account.

[1.] The Tiger Card is a Wells Fargo Campus Card. Wells Fargo may provide financial support to Auburn University for services associated with the Tiger Card
