Your Cougar Card

Your Cougar Card is an all-purpose card that is required for identification, meal plans, debit plans, vending, and admittance to SIUE buildings and events. Every student, faculty member and staff member is eligible to obtain a card with government-issued photo identification and open Cougar Bucks and Bank of Edwardsville debit accounts. Although entrusted to you while you are enrolled at or employed by Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, the Cougar Card remains the property of the University.
