There are two options to get a New or Replacement Paw Pass:

  2. Online Request - Request a new or replacement card online. After completing the online request, proof of submission will be sent to your student email address. Upon approval, you will be sent an email confirmation of your approval. Once the approval is sent to you, the card will be mailed out within 1-2 business days or ready for pick up. 

There is a $10 fee for all replacement Paw Passes. This includes cards that are lost, damaged, altered or hole punched.

No one other than to whom the card is issued may use the ID card for any reason. The Paw Pass is the property of the University of Houston-Victoria and may be revoked at any time by the University.
