Flex Dollars

Flex dollars are a declining balance that can be used in the Deli (when it is in operation) or to swipe a guest in at the dining hall. Flex dollars are used for cash purposes.

  • Flex dollars carry over between fall and spring semester but expire at the conclusion of spring semester. Unused flex dollars from fall semester roll over to the spring semester.
  • Flex dollars are active for the entire academic year, as long as the meal plan is active.
  • Students can add flex dollars to their Trinity ID card in the Business Office.
