On May 18, the LakerCard Center will begin issuing new LakerCards. From that date forward, all new student and employee cards, and any replacement cards, will be issued with the new card design. All existing cards will continue to work for the foreseeable future although there will be a date when we discontinue use of the old card. You will receive communication once that date is determined. For the duration of the transition, there will be two LakerCard formats in circulation. Existing students and employees who wish to have a LakerCard with the new design can purchase one for $5 if they bring in their existing card to exchange.
