Dining Dollars

All students living on campus have Dining Dollars or meals that can be converted to Dining Dollars.

Using Dining Dollars, you can make purchases in all University Dining Services locations by presenting your MavCARD to the cashier. Your purchase is deducted from your account and your current balance is shown on the receipt, so it is easy for you to keep track of your money. You may also check your balance online.

When your balance runs low, you can add Dining Dollars to your account. Depending on the Meal Plan, some Dining Dollar balances remaining at the end of Fall Semester will carry over to the Spring Semester, but do not carry over to the next academic year. Converted Dining Dollar balances on the Maverick 160 plan do not carry over from the Fall Semester to Spring Semester and any amount remaining will be forfeited.

Converting Meals to Dining Dollars (from the Maverick 160 Meal Plan)

Students with a Maverick 160 Meal Plan can request to Convert Meals to Dining Dollars. Once converted, Maverick 160 Dining Dollars may not be converted back to meals.

Convert any of the 160 meals a semester into Dining Dollars twice a semester (Beginning August 1 until November 30 for Fall Semester and April 30 for Spring Semester). The 2019 - 2020 conversion rate is $5.90 per meal.
