Bearkat Bucks are tax-free dollars placed in a pre-paid balance account that can be used to purchase items at the dining locations on campus. Bearkat Bucks that are associated to meal plans will rollover from Spring to Summer II. After Summer II, Bearkat Buck will reset to zero.

Remaining Balances & Refunds
All Bearkat Bucks accounts are cleared out at the conclusion of Summer Session II classes. This means that any balance on those accounts are cleared to a zero amount and no refunds are given. The only exception to this rule is if you resign from school (only your deposits are refunded, not bonus points included with your meal plan). – just remember, use it or lose it.
