Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are an integral part of your meal plan. They should be used during all a la carte meals*, and may be used to purchase an all-you-care-to-eat meal for guests, and snacks or meals all the campus restaurant locations.

Just Like Cash!

During a la carte meals, items are priced individually so you are only charged for those items you select.
Dining Dollars are available for purchase June 1st and your balance will carry over from term to term with your total balance expiring the last day of the Spring term at 10pm.
When an official withdrawal from the University has been processed through Student Financial Services, unused Dining Dollars purchased in the semester you withdraw are 100% refundable and will only be applied to the PLU student account.

Budget Your Dining Dollars

Remember, you are in charge of budgeting your Dining Dollars to make them last an entire term. Check out the Dining Dollars Budget chart to see where you should be at any point during the term.

Your LuteCard
