Lost UGACard

Lost UGACards​

Your UGACard is a cash card and because your UGACard is your key to all services on campus you should protect it accordingly. 

The UGACard Office will email you at your UGA email address if your lost card has been turned in. 

Report It!

If you have a Paw Points or a Bulldog Bucks account, follow the instructions in the Bulldog Bucks FAQ for “What Should I do if I lose my card?”

If you have special access to buildings, rooms, labs, or other secured areas, contact your department’s access control administrator to disable your card’s access until you get it replaced.

Access to Dorms, Dining Halls, and Ramsey Center require the use of a PIN or Iris Image, so a lost card on its own will not give someone access to those facilities. 

Replace It!

Come to the UGACard Office at the Tate Center during regular office hours. See sidebar for identification requirements and card fees.

Replaced UGACards cannot be reactivated if found. Your UGACard is treated like a lost or stolen credit/debit card.


309 Tate Student Center – 3rd Floor, between Tate Theatre & Starbucks
