Falcon Card Services
Falcon Card Services is the home of the Falcon Card, the official multipurpose campus card that is used for photo identification, meal-plan access, campus Falcon Funds purchases, entrance into campus buildings, SPU Library privileges, and admission to or discounts on certain SPU-sponsored activities. When you have your photo taken for your Falcon Card, you will need to provide a valid form of government-issued photo identification. Your Falcon Card is activated upon receipt and will expire upon your graduation. It is for your use only. If you allow another person to use your card to access food services, building entrance, or identification, both parties will be subject to disciplinary actions.
If your Falcon Card is lost or stolen, you must report it immediately to the card office or by logging on to your Falcon Card account online through Falcon Card Services, so that it can be deactivated to protect the money and services on your card. Damaged cards must be replaced, so handle your card with care. Your first Falcon Card is free; replacement cards (lost, stolen, or damaged) are $25 and can be obtained at the Office of University Services during regular business hours. You can view and add to your Falcon Funds balance by logging on to your account through Falcon Card Services. Falcon Card Services is in the Office of University Services (across from Hill Hall) and is open Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. A full statement of the Terms and Conditions applicable to the Falcon Card is available on the Falcon Card Services website.

The SCC provides crisis intervention, mental-health assessments, community referrals, and counseling for individuals, couples, families, and groups. In collaboration with Health Services, the SCC provides a special treatment program for students challenged by eating disorders. A registered dietitian provides nutritional support to these clients as well as general nutritional counseling. The SCC refers clients who need to be evaluated for psychiatric medication to Health Services and work closely with them to provide a coordinated treatment program. The SCC also offers events and educational programming for the campus community on a wide range of topics related to mental health and human relationships. There is no fee for counseling services. For more information, contact the SCC at 206-281-2657, visit spu.edu/scc, or talk with your RA, SMC, or RLC.
