9.9 Other Information of Interest to Faculty and Academic Staff

9.9.1 Parking

Classified and unclassified employees who desire vehicle parking spaces must apply to the Director of Public Safety. Application may be done in person (basement of South Hall) or online. It is an employee’s responsibility to be informed of the campus parking regulations (see website above). Longevity of service with the institution is the basis used for assigning permits to parking lots closest to the buildings of employment. The number of assignments may exceed the actual number of stalls by 10% in order to take advantage of normal absenteeism. Permits are sold on both a 12-month basis and academic year basis and may be paid for in cash at the time of purchase or through payroll deduction.

9.9.2 ID Cards

Faculty, staff, and students are required to present an official University ID card for many services. ID cards are available in the Campus Card Office, located in 131 Hagestad Hall. Upon initial employment at the University an ID card is provided at no cost to the employee. Lost or stolen cards may be replaced for a $10 fee.

9.9.3 Lost and Found

The Department of Public Safety (telephone 3133) provides a Lost and Found service.

9.9.4 Falcon Dollars

Falcon Dollars are an electronic currency available to anyone in the University community. By pre-depositing money into a Falcon Dollars account, one receives a 5% discount on food items purchased at University Center dining venues. Copy machines offer a $0.02 discount per copy off the regular cash price. Falcon Dollars can also be used for FredNet Services, the Falcon Shop (bookstore), the Information Desk, the Involvement Center Desk, and in the residence hall washers and dryers. If you are a student, sales tax is not charged on consumable food purchases made with Falcon Dollars in our University Center dining venues.

A university ID card is required for all purchases of Falcon Dollars and merchandise. No refunds shall be given except in the case of withdrawal from the University. A $20 processing fee will be charged for refunds.
