Dining Dollar Plan

Available to all upper-class and off-campus students

Dining Dollars provide the ultimate flexibility and allow students to use their dollars at any time and in any on-campus dining location. Dining Dollars are held in a debit card-like account—a convenient, no-cash way of buying meals and snacks. Dining Dollars can also be used to pay for catering services for individual needs, to purchase gift baskets (not reimbursable), and at the truckload sale. They may not be used as a means of payment for a University-sponsored catered event. Dining Dollars carry over from semester to semester and year to year, but become invalid upon graduation or separation from the University.
