Texan Card

The Texan Card is the university's identification card issued to students, faculty, staff, and others. It is a photo ID with a magnetic stripe, and is used for a variety of things, such as building access, entry into on-campus events, and Texan Bucks, a stored-value debit system for use on and off-campus.

Your Texan Card gives you access to many Tarleton events and facilities. It is your admission to the Campus Recreation facility and to athletic and fine arts events. You must present your card to receive services at the Student Health Center located in Traditions North. If you live on campus, you will use your Texan Card to access your residence hall and meal plan.

How do I obtain my Texan Card?

Come to room 212 of the Thompson Student Center on the main campus and be ready to smile. The first card is free! Replacements for lost, stolen or damaged cards can be purchased for $10.00. Please come to the Texan Card Office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Your new Texan Card will void the previous card.

A government issued photo id must be presented to obtain your Texan Card. These include driver's license, passport, military ID or state issued ID card.

Southwest Metroplex, Waco and Midlothian Campuses

Do I get a new card every year?

Your Texan Card will be active as long as you are a student at Tarleton. If your card is damaged and/or no longer working and is more than one year old, you can bring it in for a free replacement. If you do not bring the current card into the office, a replacement will be treated as a lost card and the $10.00 replacement fee will apply.
