Worried about running out of Dining Plus? You can load yourself back up by purchasing Dining Cash in any amount you choose. Dining Cash functions like Dining Plus, but it remains valid until you are no longer a BSU student.
If you currently hold a meal plan, you will receive a 10% discount on your Dining Cash account if you purchase it in an even hundred-dollar increment. (For example, purchase a $200 block of Dining Cash for $180, saving $20.) Any student may purchase Dining Cash, but you must have (or have signed up for) a meal plan (either a residential or an off-campus plan) to purchase Dining Cash at the discounted rate. Dining Cash may be used until you leave Ball State and are no longer a student, even if during part of that time you choose not to have a meal plan, but the purchase of the Dining Cash account must be made while signed up for a plan if you wish to receive the discount.*
Dining Cash is purchased online—just follow the appropriate link below. Purchases made before 5 p.m. will be available the morning of the next business day; if made after 5 p.m., they will be available the morning of the second following business day. (For example, a purchase made at 7 p.m. on Friday will be available Tuesday morning.)

Please note: If you are not on or signed up for a meal plan and use the link above, a discount will be applied in error; the discounted amount will then be taken out of the value of your Dining Cash. To avoid this, please use the link below.

*Dining Cash is not considered a meal plan; if you wish to add more funds to your account after the initial block purchase, you will receive the 10% discount if you also hold an on-campus or off-campus meal plan at the time funds are added. When you leave the university, unused Dining Cash is not refunded.
