Differences between Meal Plans and Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are Only for students with a Residents Life Meal Plan. Each Meal Plan includes Dining Dollars which can be used at Mayes Dining Hall, The Lion's Den, & University Java.

Take a look below. For students with a Residents Life Meal Plan making purchases at any of the food locations, the Dining Dollars will be used first. If you do not have Dining Dollars, funds will be deducted from Lion Bucks. Purchases from vending, bookstore and other non meal locations will only come from Lion Bucks.
