Falcon Dollars

Falcon Dollars are a pre-paid debit account for students, faculty and staff - like a gift card.  You use your UW-River Falls ID card to access your account.  By pre-depositing money into a Falcon Dollars account, you receive a 5 percent discount on food items purchased at University Center dining venues. You can also use Falcon Dollars at DoTS, the Falcon Shop, the Information Desk or the Involvement Center Desk, as well as in the print management system PaperCut. If you are a student, sales tax is not charged on consumable food purchases made with Falcon Dollars in our University Center dining venues.

Your university ID card is required for all purchases of Falcon Dollars and merchandise. No refunds shall be given with the exception of withdrawal from the university. A $20 processing fee is charged for refunds.
