Manage Your BuckID : Lost or Stolen Cards

If your BuckID has been lost or stolen, you should suspend your BuckID immediately. You can suspend your BuckID via any of the following methods:

  • Call (614) 292-5700 (24-Hour Student Life Support Desk)
  • Call (614) 292-0400 (BuckID Card Office hours: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.).
  • Go to "Manage Your Account" and log in to deactivate your card.

If you suspend your BuckID card via the 24-Hour Student Life Support Desk or the BuckID Card Office and locate your BuckID, you will need to bring it to the BuckID Card Office for reinstatement.

If you suspend your BuckID via the web, you will receive an email instructing you how to reinstate it should it be found.

If you suspect that your BuckID has been used fraudulently, check your transaction history using "Manage Account." If there are transactions that have occurred against your account that you did not incur, contact OSU police immediately to file a police report. Bring a copy of the police report and a photo ID to the BuckID Card Office. You may receive a replacement ID for $5.00 and we will work on your behalf with the vendors.

If you have lost your BuckID, bring a photo ID with $20.00 to the BuckID Card Office to receive a replacement.
