CougarCard: Your Key to WSU

Your CougarCard is the only card you need as a student at WSU. It serves as your university ID, lets you access facilities and pay for food with your meal plan, and so much more!

Upcoming Events

The card center will be semi relocated to Beasley Coliseum for incoming student check-ins from Aug 13-16, so our staffing at our main CougarCard will be limited on Friday, August 13 and Monday, August 16.
