Meal Swipes

Meal Swipes are deposited onto your card at the beginning of the semester and can be used until the end of the semester. Meal Swipes are not transferrable.

If you have depleted your meal swipes, you may purchase meals with another form of payment.

Meal Swipe exchanges are available in all of our retail locations.

The deadline to make changes to your Fall 23 meal plan is September 15, 2023, and the deadline to make changes to your Spring 24 meal plan is February 20, 2024.

Flex Dollars

Flex Dollars roll over from semester to semester, but not between academic years. Any Flex Dollars left in your account at the end of Semester 3 will be lost.

Once students deplete their Flex Dollars, they have the option to use their Obie Dollars or another form of payment.

Obie Dollars

Obie Dollars works like a prepaid debit card that allows you to make purchases at any dining location.

Obie dollars may be added online, at ID card office or at kiosks at any library.

Obie Dollars may be added in any amount.
