Replacement CatCards

Replacement Cards

Students, faculty and staff receive their first CatCard at no charge. University affiliates must pay a $20 fee for their first CatCard, and can arrange with their sponsoring department to recharge the $20 to that department. Anyone who needs to obtain a replacement CatCard, where the existing card is lost, stolen, damaged, faulty, or if you have changed your name, must pay a $20 fee. You can get your replacement card by visiting the CatCard Office during business hours. Please purchase your replacement card online or at the cashier's office before visiting the office and make sure to bring your receipt or confirmation. The CatCard office is temporarily close to in-person services due to the COVID19. Once you have paid for the replacement, please email us (catcard@ucmerced.edu) a copy (image) of your payment receipt along with your CatCard ID number and current mailing address. The CatCard office will mail-out your CatCard ID as fast as we can.
