All undergraduate students enrolled in 9 credit hours or more on campus will participate in the Dining Dollars program. The Dining Dollars fee of $350 is charged to the student account automatically when the 9 credit hour criteria is met in the Fall and Spring semesters. A $100 Dining Dollars fee is also charged during the Summer semester when undergraduate students are enrolled in 5 credit hours or more. Just like the meal plan, Dining Dollars is an account on the Action Card.
The Dining Dollars program is designed to supplement a student’s campus dining needs. The $350 Dining Dollars equals about $20.59 per week or $2.94 per day. Dining Dollars can be used at all Bama Dining locations, Smoothie King at the Rec Center, most on-campus vending machines, several food trucks regularly on campus, all Tuscaloosa area Domino’s locations, and Buffalo Phil’s.
Unused Dining Dollars roll from fall to spring semester. At the end of the spring semester, students may request a refund of remaining Dining Dollar Funds. If a refund is not requested, the remaining funds are transferred to the student’s Bama Cash account.
Please note that additional funds cannot be added to Dining Dollars accounts. If you would like to add funds to your Action Card, you may do so with Bama Cash.
