The Faculty Student Association offers auxiliary services on campus and is responsible for administering meal plans, ID cards (FredCard), and vending services.  The most relevant FSA services are listed below.



The bookstore offers new and used textbooks as well as a wealth of other merchandise including apparel, gifts, and computer software.  From textbook pre-pack to textbook buy-back, the bookstore meets your needs throughout every semester.


The FREDCard is an essential tool for accessing campus services.  Your initial FredCard is free (the first replacement card is usually free; additional replacements may incur a service charge).  You may obtain your card from the FSA office, located on the first floor of Gregory Hall.  Your meal plan balance, debit account balance, and FREDFunds are stored the magnetic strip of your card.  You can add cash to your card either online or through the FSA office.

FREDFunds is a new debit card program designed for use both on and off campus.  Many local off-campus vendors accept FREDCards for purchases.  Local restaurants and businesses display signs advertising their participation in this unique and convenient program.

Stay tuned for more information and further vendor additions to this exciting new program.
