Truman Tiger Mascot ID card

All new MU students taking University courses for credit can request an ID card (Mizzou TigerCard) at no charge. A new student is defined as one who has not received an ID card from the University in the past. If you have previously enrolled and received an ID card (even if you left the University for a time) your old ID card will be electronically validated once you are financially enrolled.

The ID allows you to:

  • access any University of Missouri system library (MU, UMKC, UMSL, S&T)
  • request books through MERLIN or MOBIUS
  • use computer labs at MU
  • use for student discount purchases (example: movie tickets, MU event tickets)

Valid only when presented with a Photo ID such as your driver's license.

Requesting a student ID

The first ID is free of charge. If a replacement ID is requested, the charge is $15. The charge will be made to your student account, so it is not necessary to send a check directly to us. You will be billed by the University Cashiers Office.

If you are a student who will NOT be coming to the Columbia campus, and therefore will not be obtaining your student ID in the traditional way, you may request that one be sent to you. To do this, please fill out the online request form below.

Should you decide to come to campus, visit the Division of ITfor a list of on-campus services.
