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 is the stripe on the back of the card?
The ABA stripe houses personalized (banking and access services) information and ATM functions.
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:
Hours: Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. - 5 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, students may log-in to iRattler and follow the navigation: Self-Service > Campus Finance > FAMU Rattler Card Replacement or by contacting the Rattler Card Office at 850-599-8366.
