Linked to your One Card, are two separate accounts, with different features. Depositing funds into one cannot be transferred into the other. If you would like to deposit funds into both accounts, you must process two separate transactions. Remember, print receipts for your deposit transactions!!

  • Dining Dollars

    • The student Dining Dollars account allows for the purchase of tax-free food at vending machines (excluding soda) and campus Metropolitan Food Service locations such as Science Café, Starbucks, and Tiger Bites.

    • On deposits of $50 or more, a five percent bonus will be added to the account. These bonus funds can be used at dining locations after Dining Dollars are depleted. By dining on campus and taking advantage of the tax-free and bonus dollars, students can potentially save up to 14 percent on food.
