Red Hawk Dollars

The Red Hawk Dollars program is a convenient, pre-paid debit account designed for the University community (students, faculty, staff and alumni) to make purchases on campus using their Montclair State University ID Card.

$1.00 US dollar equals 1 Red Hawk Dollar.

You can deposit funds into your account via cash, check, credit card or student account credit transfer (account credit transfers are credit from loans or financial aid) and begin using your University ID card to purchase goods. You can use your Red Hawk Dollars at University Dining Service facilities, vending machines throughout campus, the University Bookstore, select off-campus merchants, Parking Services and more. To check your balances, freeze lost/stolen ID Cards or deposit Red Hawk Dollars, use your University NET ID and password to log onto the eAccounts website (eAccounts app also available for iPhone and Android!). Check out the eAccounts section of the FAQ page to get more info!

Account Credit Transfer Forms are currently being accepted for the Fall 2019 semester.

Click Account Credit Transfer to access the online form.

If you receive a “permissions error” when attempting to access the online Account Credit Transfer form – it is because the browser you are currently using is logged into another Google account that is different from your University account. Please sign out of that account and into your @montclair.edu account to complete your request.

$1,500 maximum transfer per form.

Subsequent Account Credit Transfer forms are only processed when Red Hawk Dollars account balances are below $100.00.

Current processing time is 24 hours (business days only).

Please check your student billing statement on NEST to ensure credit is still available to transfer before submitting your form. To confirm credit is still available and a refund has not been processed, check your billing statement on your NEST account. To check to see if your Account Credit Transfer has been processed and the funds have been added to your Red Hawk Dollar account, sign into eAccounts using your Net ID and password.
