Pay Paw

About Pay Paw

Pay Paw is LSUHSC's debit card system that allows you to deposit money into an account to be used to purchase various goods and services campus-wide. This system eliminates the need to carry cash for copying, vending, or food services on campus. More info on Pay Paw

Pay Paw in the Libraries

To print or photocopy, you must have either a Pay Paw card or an LSUHSC ID.
To use Pay Paw on your LSUHSC ID, you must first format the ID.
At the Isché Library, you can purchase a Pay Paw card at the Value Transfer System (near Circulation desk) for $1. You can also add cash to your card at this machine in $1, $5, $10 or $20 denominations, bills only. This machine does not give change.
At the Dental Library, you can purchase a Pay Paw card at the Bookstore.

How to Deposit Funds into your Pay Paw Account

  • With the secure Pay Paw Online Card Office, you or your relatives may deposit money using a credit card online.
  • Visit the Health Sciences Bookstore, Room 210 of the Resource Center Building or the Dental School Bookstore, Room 3101A of the Dental Administration Building. Credit and debit cards are accepted only and there is a $10 minimum.
  • You can deposit funds using one of our value transfer machines (VTS). There is one by the vending machines in the Medical Education Building Atrium: 3rd floor. There is another VTS machine located on the 3rd Floor of the John P. Isché Library on the downtown campus. These machines accept cash only and do not give change.
