Dining Dollars are good for the academic year, provide a 20% discount off the credit or debit price in the residential dining centers, and can be used for purchases at the Marketplace Convenience Store, Food Court and Java B&B.

Students living in the residence halls and Greek Court have a room and board contract and automatically have Dining Dollars in their meal plan.  Off-campus students, faculty, and staff may purchase Dining Dollars separately.  These are encoded on your Panther Card.

Any unused Dining Dollars purchased during the fall semester roll over and are added to your account for the spring semester. All Dining Dollars expire at the end of the spring semester, unless you purchase a summer meal plan, in which case the unused amount rolls over to the summer and expire at the end of the summer session.
