What if I forget my card?

Sorry. You have to have to have your card present at the game and scanned by the end of halftime (basketball and soccer), the end of the fifth inning (baseball and softball), the beginning of the third set (volleyball), or within one hour of the start time (all other sports) to get credit. We can't give credit for past events.

What if I lose my card?

No problem, a replacement card is only $2.

What's the fine print?

  • Membership is open to currently enrolled UT Tyler students. Your student ID may be required for membership. 
  • Point levels from previous years are not carried over and all fans will start at zero (0) credits.    
  • Each UT Tyler student is entitled to only one Patriot Nation card.
  • Students must be present with card to earn points. If you try to scan someone else's card, scan twice or otherwise cheat the system, you'll be dropped from the Patriot Nation for the year. 
  • Student-athletes may not get credit for checking-in at events in the sport in which they participate.
  • Special events may be designated for credit by the UT Tyler Athletics Department.
  • Use of the Patriot Nation card at NCAA Championship events hosted at UT Tyler will be at the discretion of the NCAA site representative.
