Bengal Card

Both full-time and part-time students are required to have a valid ISU Bengal Card as proof of enrollment. New students receive one Bengal Card at no charge. Returning students keep the same card each year. The card is electronically re-validated each semester the student is enrolled and fees are paid. As a safeguard, if your card is lost or stolen, immediately notify Bengal Card Services at 3618 during regular office hours or Public Safety at 2515 after hours. A "Lost Card" hold will be put on your card so that no one will be able to use your card for housing, meal plans, munch money or access. If your card is turned into the Bengal Card office, we will notify you by email. Replacement cards can be purchased for $15.

Students May obtain Bengal Cards at the following locations:
