Welcome to the Pay Paw online account management web site!

The Pay Paw Card is: The LSUHSC declining balance transaction system that allows faculty, staff, and students to access, without cash, a variety of goods and service throughout the campus:

  • Health Sciences and Dental Bookstores
  • Copy and Printing Resources at many key locations

The Pay Paw Card is the result of a cooperative endeavor between LSU Baton Rouge (the Tiger Card) and LSUHSC New Orleans to provide enhanced levels of service while dynamically sharing costs for BlackBoard Transaction and Pharos Printing solutions to our campuses.

All ID cards that have been issued in recent years have the Pay Paw number encoded on the magnetic stripe and printed on the back. Look for a number beginning with 444 (New Orleans campus), then seven additional digits (your personal ID). That is your Pay Paw account number. If you do not have this 444 number on the back of your card, please see the Registrar of Students, or Human Resource Management for faculty and staff, then have your new card activated.
