ClipperCash, Dining Dollars and Printing Points

ClipperCash, Dining Dollars, and Printing Points

  • If you have a meal plan then your ClipperCard will have three debit accounts for your use, a ClipperCash, Dining Dollar, and Printing Point account.
  • If you do not have a meal plan then you will only have two accounts, a ClipperCash and Printing Point account.

What is ClipperCash?
ClipperCash is a pre-paid debit account that can be used for purchases of products and services on and off campus wherever the ClipperCard is accepted. ClipperCash does not expire and will be rolled over by semester and academic year.  To make a purchase, just present or swipe your card wherever the ClipperCard is accepted. It's that easy! The amount of your purchase will be automatically deducted from your ClipperCard.


What is a Dining Dollar?
As part of your existing meal plan (10, 14, or 19 board meal plan, resident meal plan or commuter meal plan) you will have an allotted amount of Dining Dollars per semester. These funds can be used at any Aramark dining location to purchase food for yourself or a friend. When you present your card, the amount of your purchase will be deducted from your Dining Dollars account. Dining Dollars roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester but will expire at the end of the academic year. (Also as part of your existing meal plan, you will receive ClipperCash per semester.)


What is a Printing Point?
$5 worth of printing points are given to all registered students each semester at no additional charge. Printing points can be used at print stations and applicable copy machines on campus. Printing points are NOT Accepted at the copy center in Meier Hall.
