FSUCard General Information

What is the FSUCard?

The FSUCard is the official identification card for The Florida State University. It is your Full Seminole Access to campus life. Many facilities and events that you can attend and/or participate in will require that you have a valid FSUCard.

How and where do I use my FSUCard?

Using your FSUCard is easy! In most areas, you will swipe your card to use it. Your FSUCard is your access to the Residence Halls, Seminole Dining, athletic events, printing, laundry, vending, and so much more!

What is the 16-digit number on the front of the FSUCard?

The 16-digit card number in the center of your card is your FSUCard number. This is your general identification number with the University.

As a student, does my first FSUCard cost anything?

There is no initial card fee for the first FSUCard you receive. Rather, there is a recurring $5 semester term fee assessed to ALL FSU students every spring and fall semester. The cost of a replacement card is $15.

Where is the FSUCard Center located?

The FSUCard Center is located at 104 N Woodward Ave., in the Woodward Ave. Parking Garage, on the corner of Woodward Avenue and West Call Street. We are open Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM to assist you. Cashier hours are 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday - Friday. Email us at or call (850) 644-7777.

I am faculty/staff. What do I do if I need to replace my card?

A replacement FSUCard is $15.00 which must be paid at the time of replacement. NOTE: There is no charge for legal name changes, damaged/wear and tear or replacement of stolen FSUCards when proper documentation is presented. Employees will receive one (1) replacement every five (5) years for normal wear and tear.  The Card Center staff will exercise their best judgement and handle any additional exceptions to the fee on a case by case basis. 

I am faculty/staff. If I take classes, does my status change?

No. If you are faculty/staff and taking classes, as long as you are employed by the university, your status will remain as an employee.

I have legally changed my name and want to update my card with my new name. What do I do?

To have your name changed on your FSUCard, you must make sure your name is updated with the univeristy. It takes 48 hours for this change to be updated in the FSUCard System. Once 48 hours has passed, visit the FSUCard Center to obtain a new card. You will need to bring your old card and a government issued ID (Driver’s License, Social Security Card, Passport, etc.) with your new name. Proper documentation of a legal name change (letter of change, marriage license, etc.) presented at time of issuance will have the replacement fee waived. The replacement fee will apply if no supporting documentation is produced.

I am a Distance Learning Student. How do I obtain an FSUCard?

Distance learning students may request their FSUCard via email. Email the FSUCard Agreement, photo ID (Driver's License, Passport, etc.) and your mailing address to

Note: Do NOT include sensitive personal information (Social Security Number, etc.) in this email. An FSUCard Center representative will contact you if additional information is needed.

How do I protect my card?

Keep it safe!

  • Store your FSUCard in a wallet, card sleeve, or other cover
  • Keep your card away from electronic equipment
  • Leaving your FSUCard in a hot car can warp the plastic causing it to break.

Keep it clean!

  • Stickers, adhesives, ink, and hole punches will cause the card to not swipe.
