The CougarCard – Your Passport to life at WSU

As your official University ID, the CougarCard is your passport to life at WSU. WSU students, faculty and staff use their CougarCard over eight million times each year. You’ll use it for everything from checking out books at the library to attending student sponsored events; more specifically you’ll need it for:

  • General University Identification
  • Library Privileges
  • Access to athletic events for students who purchased a sports pass
  • Printing on campus
  • Access to student events
  • Free public transit

Where can I get my card?

New students will take their CougarCard ID photo at New Student Orientation. Your ID card will typically be ready for pick up the same day. You can also pick up your card in the Campus Security office (Floyd 269K).

Staff and faculty can stop by Campus Security (Floyd 269K) to have their ID photo taken. Cards can be printed within about five minutes.

I’ve lost my card, what do I do?

The CougarCard holder is responsible for immediately deactivating their lost or stolen card at or contacting the CougarCard Center at 509-335-CARD (2273) during business hours Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A $15 charge is assessed for the replacement of a lost or stolen CougarCard.

You can pay your $15 replacement charge at Student Accounts (Floyd 269).
