ID Bucs & Dining/Flex Dollars
How is ID Bucs different from the Dining or Flex Dollars that come with your meal plan? Dining and Flex Dollars are added to your ID card automatically when your meal plan is applied to your account. These funds are used with your meal plan so you can visit all the retail locations on campus. If you have a meal plan both semesters, unused Dining and Flex Dollars will roll over from fall to spring semester. Keep in mind that Dining & Flex Dollars will expire at the end of the spring semester if not used. To review terms and conditions about your Dining/Flex Dollars, visit Housing and Residence Life's website.
