What are J Dollars?

J Dollars are dollars to be used in the Campus cafeteria. (1) J Dollar = $1. If you choose to purchase food with J Dollars, your J Dollars will be deducted from your balance, like a debit.

  • Residence Life Plans 1 and 2: Unused J Dollars from the fall semester can be rolled over into the following spring semester, only if you re-enroll in RL Plan 1 or RL Plan 2.
  • J Dollar Options 3, 4, and 5: Unused J Dollars from the fall semester can be rolled over into the following spring semester, only if you enroll into RL Plan 1 or RL Plan 2. If you do not enroll in a full RL meal plan in the following spring semester, then your fall J Dollars from Plan 3, 4, or 5 cannot be rolled over.
  • Rollover J Dollars cannot be used to reduce the cost of a meal plan.
  • If you do not use your J Dollars by the end of the spring semester, you lose them. J Dollars cannot be rolled from the spring semester into the following fall semester.
