Frequently Asked Questions

What is my FSUcard?

Your FSUcard is your student ID which provides access to residence halls.  If you have a meal plan, your FSUcard is used for meals in The Dining Commons.  If you have a meal plan with Dining Dollars (FSU Dining Locations ONLY) or RAM Cash, you may use your FSUcard for purchases at all FSU Dining Services locations, at the bookstore, for laundry, at selected snack vending machines and at a variety of Off-Campus vendors. Please visit the RAM Cash page of our website for additional information and instructions for getting started. 

What do I do if I lost my FSUcard?

Lost FSUcards must be reported to the ID Office during business hours or to Campus police on nights and weekends.  There is a $15.00 fee for replacement of a lost card.  Cards may also be put on hold via Blackboard.

How do I change my meal plan?

You have two options. One: you can log into myFramingham, look under Student Accounts, then click Change Meal Plan to select your change. Dining Services will automatically be notified of your request. Two: you can visit the Dining Services Office to request a change in meal plan.  Please note that changes to a lower meal plan may only be made prior to add/drop.
