The R-Card Office is constantly looking for innovative ways to utilize your R-Card. We currently provide two services that assist student organizations with events they are planning. If you would like to have the R-Card Office assist you in your event, please fill out the request form in the left menu that matches the event you will be holding. Due to the nature of the requests and to ensure that your event is processed on time, we ask that you follow the time requirements listed on the form. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.


Many campus organizations will hold a catered event through the Dining Services Catering Department. The R-Card Office has teamed up with Catering to allow cardholders to use the funds from their Meal Plan, or TAR BUC$ if funds are not available in the Meal Plan. There is a limit of $60 that can be used per event. If you would like to have Dining Services cater an event for you, please click here for more information.

Fundraiser / Events

One of our more popular services, the R-Card Office offers campus organizations the option for their customers the ability to use TAR BUC$ to pay for items or make donations. Below are the two options we have for processing transactions for events.

Student Involvement Desk Register Terminal – Located at the Cornell Campus Center, this register is easily accessible for running transactions for multiple products. We encourage any organization that would like to accept TAR BUC$ as a method of payment to use this option.

Wireless Readers – The R-Card Office has two wireless readers available for check out to enable organizations to process transactions using TAR BUC$. Each of these readers must be in proximity to a router or be able to connect to the wireless network in order to function. These requests will be granted on a first come, first serve basis due to the limited number of readers.
