Bonus Bucks

Every meal plan at Ithaca College includes Bonus Bucks. Accessed through the student's ID card, exclusively for that student. They can be used at all retail locations on campus and be used to enter any of the dining halls if the student does not have an unlimited meal plan and has used up all meal plan swipes for a given week. 

Bonus Bucks are tax free and are for on-campus food purchases only. Bonus Bucks carry over from Fall to Spring semester, but not to the next academic year. They can also be reloaded at any point in the year in $25 increments if your balance is low. To reload use the Shop Now tab above or contact Ithaca Dining Services at (607) 274-1187.

You can also use Bonus Bucks to buy an additional meal or treat a friend or family member at Terrace, Towers and Campus Center Dining Hall's.
