The average college student spends about $2000 for food each semester. With that in mind, we created the default $1100 dining dollars plan for students who live on campus to cover about half that amount. Students who live off-campus have a default plan that provides $350 in dining dollars to provide funds for lunches, snacks and beverages during the semester.
Many students completely use these dining funds by mid-semester, so we do our best to make adding funds quick and easy. These additional dining funds are available via your Tiger Card – just like the regular dining plans. These funds NEVER EXPIRE and you may request a refund at any time. Add Funds or Block Meals via GET Mobile
There are two options for adding dining dollars and one for adding more block meals. Here are the details:
Optional dining reservations are exactly like dining dollars. They may be used to purchase food at any on-campus dining location, including food trucks and athletics concessions.
Tiger Club funds are also available via your Tiger Card, but offer a bit more flexibility. These funds may be used to purchase food anywhere on campus and at participating retailers in the local community. Participating Locations List
These additional dining funds never expire, so they are placed in a separate account. **When you get to the end of your regular dining dollars, simply tell the cashier that you have another dining plan loaded to your Tiger Card. The cashier will press a button to access that account, and once accessed, it will be used until you receive a new plan next semester.
Add-on 25 Block Meals may be purchased at any time throughout the semester; however, you’ll need to notify the dining office so they can add this capability to your Tiger Card. Simply send a quick note to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 334-844-8504.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: Ensure your Block 25 meals balance is ZERO before adding more. The program will not allow you to add more block meals until all your current block meals are gone.
