For Parents

You'll like the R'Card because it's easy, convenient, it makes good financial sense, and it keeps you connected to your Student's UC Riverside experience.
With the R'Card you can:

  1. Budget to meet your son/daughter's estimated expenses. See the fund estimator below.
  2. Feel comfortable knowing that your son/daughter can only use Bear Bucks in University approved locations.
  3. Deposit quickly and easily from home. With your students ID number (861XXXXXX) just click here Guest Deposit to make a deposit. Your student will receive an email letting them know you made a deposit on their behalf. They will be able to access that money immediately.

Depositing to your student's Bear Bucks Account is easy: you just need your Student's UCR ID Number (861XXXXXX); once you have that, click here Guest Deposit  to add funds to their account.
