Please remember, you must meet all Dress and Grooming Standards to receive an ID card!
Payment: The cost to replace a lost or abused BYU ID card is $10. Our preferred method of payment is Cougar Cash. We also accept cash, check, or debit/credit. We cannot post charges to your Financial Center. We will accept an old BYU ID card as payment if you turn in the old ID card at the time your new card is produced. We do not issue refunds if you find an old ID card later.
Cougar Cash: When a replacement ID card is printed your Cougar Cash and meal plan are immediately available for use with the new card.
