What is the difference between Discretionary Dollars and Falcon Funds?

Discretionary Dollars are part of the Meal Plan. They may only be used to purchase food at Campus Dining locations (except Dunkin Donuts). Falcon Funds are monies that you personally add to your Falcon Fund account. They may be used on campus like a debit card. Falcon Funds are accepted at the bookstore, student information desk and all campus dining locations.

Important Info

Using Your Meal Card 

Your Bentley University ID Card is your ticket to dining on campus. With the purchase of a meal plan and/or Falcon Funds, simply present it when you visit for meals at The 921. Each entry to The 921 deducts a meal from your balance. Any unused meals are not transferable semester to semester. Please treat your Bentley Student ID as a credit card; DO NOT lend it to anyone or borrow one from someone else. Fraudulent lending of your ID will result in your ID being confiscated and sent to Residential Life for further action.

Falcon Funds 

Falcon Funds is a debit card system and money management tool activated through your ID card. Instead of carrying cash, all you have to do is present your student ID and your purchases will be automatically deducted from your Falcon Fund account. Falcon Funds may be used on campus at the bookstore, student information desk and our dining locations. Falcon Funds may be added to your account at the Card Office located at Campus Police.
