SLU ID Frequently Asked Questions

What if I am a staff member and a student?

You will only be issued one SLU ID, no matter how many ways you are tied to Saint Louis University. Your primary relationship with the University determines the type of card you get. For example, full-time staff who take classes at SLU are issued staff cards. Full-time students who work part-time at SLU are issued a student ID.

What does a SLU ID cost?

There is no charge for the first SLU ID we issue you. Active cards that need to be replaced due to theft or natural wear and tear are free, but you must have a police report number or turn in the worn card. Natural wear and tear results from swiping cards through card readers and does not include punching holes, scratches, breaks or cuts. The fee for replacing an ID card is $25.

What if I lose my SLU ID?

Call Parking, Card and Transportation Services immediately at 314-977-2957. We will deactivate your lost SLU ID, preventing anyone from using your Billiken Bucks or Bonus Flex account or any other services.

If your SLU ID is your U.S. Bank ATM card, please call 314-533-1041 to deactivate the ATM portion of the card.

It is $25 to replace a lost ID. You can pay for the replacement via cash, check, debit or credit at our office. Students actively enrolled in classes can bill the fee to their student account and eligible faculty/staff members may pay for the ID through payroll deduction.
