Red Hawk Dollars

We’ve Moved the Online Card Office to eAccounts!

The Online Card Office can now be accessed through the eAccounts website! eAccounts also has an app for iPhones and Androids. If you still have the Red Hawk Dollars app, you will need to delete that app and download eAccounts to check balances, freeze lost/stolen IDs, and deposit Red Hawk Dollars. Check out the eAccounts section of the FAQ page to get more info!


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.

Account Credit Transfer Forms are currently being accepted for the Fall 2018 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.
