Rattler CardWhat is the RATTLER Card and who needs one?
The RATTLER Card is Florida A&M University’s official University Identification Card, and is a vital part of your everyday life at FAMU. Many campus services are available only when the RATTLER Card is presented. The RATTLER Card can also serve as an ATM card. These options are features specifically designed for the Florida A&M community. You can select the options that benefit your needs.
What are the two stripes on the back of the card?
The ABA or the wider of the two magnetic stripes houses personalized (banking and access services) information and ATM functions. The smaller of the two stripes is the vend stripe and is not used at this time. Cards issued after June 1, 2012 only have one stripe.
What if my card is lost, damaged, or stolen?
Care should be taken to ensure that the card is not lost, damaged, or stolen. Because the RATTLER Card is considered an official identification card, loss of the card is comparable to the loss of a driver’s license or credit card. Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to the RATTLER Card Service Center at:
Phone: 877-307-7181 Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
There is no charge for the initial card, but there is a $15.00 charge for a replacement card. To get a replacement card contact the Rattler Card Office at 850-599-8366.
