Your banner ID number or student ID number is a randomly assigned nine digit number that will be printed on your TigerCard (student ID card) and is necessary to know for the completion of certain Auburn forms (e.g. 903xxxxxx), including your application to the Honors College.

Your user name and ID number can be found on your acceptance letter to Auburn University. If you cannot find your User Name and ID number, please call the Office of Admission Processing at (334) 844-6429.
