About the Falcon Card
See the full Terms & Conditions for the Falcon Card here.
The multipurpose Falcon Card features a cardholder’s name, nine-digit identification number and photo. Your Falcon Card identifies you as a member of the SPU community. All students, faculty and staff are issued a Falcon Card. Your Falcon Card is valid upon receipt and will cease to operate on your separation from SPU.
Meal Plan Access
If you participate in a meal plan, your Falcon Card allows you to access your plan at all dining locations including Gwinn Commons Dining Hall, Common Grounds, the Corner Store, Subway, Falcon’s Landing, and Cocina Del Sol. Learn more about meal plans here.
Building and Residence Hall Access
Your Falcon Card can be used to access certain campus buildings. The Office of Safety and Security manages all access and grants different levels of access depending on a variety of factors. If you are having access problems it is best to reach out to Safety and Security to verify that your card access permissions are correct.
You may not use your card to provide another person access to SPU buildings, and you may not use someone else's card to gain access to SPU buildings. To support the security of our campus, report any lost or stolen cards immediately by logging into your Falcon Card Account and selecting “I Lost My Card” from the menu to deactivate your card and its access. If your card is found it can be reactivated (as long as a replacement card has not been issued) by logging into your Falcon Card Account and selecting “I Found My Card” from the menu.
Your Falcon Card functions as a library card at the SPU Library. The back of your Falcon Card features a library bar code for checking out books and utilizing library resources. The use of SPU Library services is subject to additional policiess that can be found here.
Falcon Funds Transactions
Your Falcon Card can be loaded with Falcon Funds, SPU's official campus currency, which can be used to make purchases around campus. Log into your Falcon Card account to add Falcon Funds which creates a declining balance account. Your Falcon Card account not only tracks Falcon Funds but also meal plans (weekly block meal plans, Dining Dollars and block plan usage) and can provide both balances and transaction history information. Transaction reports can also be requested in person from the Office of University Services.
About Falcon Funds
See the full Terms & Conditions for Falcon Funds here.
Falcon Funds are SPU's official campus currency which can be used around campus to purchase food at our many dining locations (tax free), or to make non-dining purchases at the SPU Bookstore, Mailing Services, at printers/copiers around campus, in residence hall laundry rooms, at most campus vending machines, and with the Outdoor Recreation Program in the SUB. Falcon Funds can be added to your card by logging into your Falcon Card account and charging them to your credit card (fees apply) or to your Student Financial Services (SFS) account. Parents, Guardians or other relatives can add Falcon Funds to a student's card as well (here) using a credit card (fees apply).
Falcon Funds are non-transferable. Upon separation from SPU, any remaining Falcon Funds in your account are eligible for a refund. See the full Terms & Conditions for details.
