Lost/Stolen Card

If you are in need of a replacement Spartan Card, you will need to visit our office. You must bring a government-issued photo ID such as a US driver's license, passport or state ID.

  • Students

    If your Spartan Card is lost or stolen, we recommend that you deactivate your Spartan Card at the Spartan Cash website. If you find your Spartan Card prior to obtaining a replacement, you can also use this website to reactivate your card.

    To obtain a replacement Spartan Card, you will need to visit the ID Office and provide your APID/student ID number and a valid form of government-issued photo identification (US driver's license, state ID, military ID or passport).

    There is a $20 charge to obtain a new Spartan Card. The charge is applied to your student account.

    Once you have obtained a replacement Spartan Card, your old card is permanently deactivated and cannot be used again. If you find your old card, you may bring it to our office and we will apply a $10 credit to your student account.

    We are transitioning from the APID as the unique identifier for students to the student ID number. Students who had Spartan Cards that had the APID printed on the front and receive replacement Spartan Cards will have the student ID number printed on the front instead of the APID. The student ID number is the same as the APID except that the A is a 1.
