UWRF Dining places additional funds on meal plan participants ID Cards similar to a debit account. These funds are called Dining Dollars and are included with specific meal plans. Students are allowed to use Dining Dollars to purchase food and beverage items at any dining location. Purchases made with Dining Dollars are exempt from sales tax, cannot be purchased independently, taken as cash, transferred to others, or refunded.
Dining Dollars remaining at the end of Fall semester may roll-over to Spring semester only if the student has an active Spring semester meal plan. If a student not required to be on a meal plan cancels any portion of the Spring semester meal plan, the unused Fall Dining Dollars will not be refunded. All Dining Dollars must be used by the end of the Spring semester, they do not carry-over to the next academic year.
The 120 and 60 Block plan participants may convert between 1 and 30 meals into Dining Dollars (limited to the remaining balance on their account) at a rate of $6 per meal (maximum of $180 in Dining Dollars). Once meals are converted to Dining Dollars, they may not be converted back to meals. Dining Dollars cannot be refunded should the meal plan be canceled.
Block meals can be converted to Dining Dollars during designated time periods only.
