Support Falcons while you spend!
In 1998, WESTconsin Credit Union and University Advancement joined efforts to create a credit card program that could be used by alumni, friends of UWRF, students, faculty and staff. The program offers the following card options: VISA and Platinum VISA, both which earn CU Rewards. Each time cardholders use their cards, WESTconsin returns a percentage of each purchase to the UW-River Falls Foundation. These dollars are then deposited into the Falcon Annual Fund. The Falcon Annual Fund is used for the University's highest priorities.
Why choose the UW-River Falls Credit Card?
- Students at UWRF benefit each time you use your card.
- Low interest rate and no hidden fees or misleading teaser rates.
- Earn points with every purchase towards merchandise and travel rewards.
- Don't want another credit card? Switch to a better one! We can transfer your other credit card balances to a UWRF affinity card.
- Each new VISA card issued adds $1 into the fund, each Platinum VISA card adds $5 into the fund.

Participants in the program will pay a lower tuition rate which represents a 25% reduction from the regular, non-resident undergraduate academic fee rate.

Fridays are spirit day on campus, when many at UWRF sport Falcon red and white apparel. But every day can be UWRF spirit day for your car! Personalized license plates featuring the UW-River Falls logo are available to Wisconsin vehicle owners.* Plates can be personalized with up to six characters (letters and numbers). The license plates are not only a great way to display your UWRF pride but also a way to support the university. The plates run an extra $20 per set but the full $20 is returned to the university and pooled in a special scholarship fund. The Director of Financial Aid disperses the scholarship dollars to help students in difficult circumstances. The more UWRF license plates on the road, the more we can help students in need!
Order your UWRF plates today! Or remember to ask for them when you renew your tags. To access the required form, go to Wisconsin Department of Transportation and click on the University license plates link.
* Current owners of UWRF plates with the Freddy Falcon image will receive new plates with the UWRF logo upon renewal of their registration.
