Stored Value Funds

OneCard stored value funds are divided into four separate accounts, each which serve different purposes. Account balances can be checked at any Card Management Center (CMC) or online at blackboard.fitchburgstate.edu. These accounts are stored on your OneCard and are used in the following manners:

Fitchburg Gold is the most commonly used stored value account. It allows OneCard holders to store cash value on their card to make purchases everywhere on-campus and at approved vendors off-campus. Deposits can be made at CMCs (Cash Management Centers) located on campus or online. Parents and guests can make deposits to student cards online as well. These funds carry over from the previous academic year but are subject to the terms and conditions listed in the OneCard Agreement form. Visit the Fitchburg Gold page for more information.

Dining Points are given to those who have purchased a University meal plan. Dining Points are administered by Housing and are restricted to food purchases only. They can only be used at Chartwells food outlets on campus. Dining Points do not carry over from semester to semester and are loaded onto OneCards at the beginning of each semester. For more information please call Chartwells at (978) 665-3663 or visit their website.

Print Copy Quota credit is for printing, copying, and scanning in student computer labs. In an effort to effectively reduce waste, a print/copy quota has been imposed. Each semester students are given $20 credit; with every print, copy, and scan, that amount is depleted. When the full $20 has been used, students must put additional funds on their OneCard Fitchburg Gold accounts to continue using the printers.

Falcon Dollars are administered by Chartwells Dining Services and are restricted to food purchases only. They can be used at any of the Chartwells food outlets on campus. Money can be added at any time by visiting Chartwells in Holmes dining hall or by calling (978) 665-3663. Chartwells accepts cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Amex, and Discover. Falcon Dollar funds also carry over from academic year to academic year. These funds are non-refundable and must be spent before leaving Fitchburg State University. For more information please call Chartwells at (978) 665-3663 or visit their website.
