What Are Points?

There are two types of points available: Dining Points and Paw Points.

Dining Points

All students with unlimited meal plans will have 150 Dining Points loaded onto their TigerCard on September 2, 2023, corresponding with the start of the fall semester. An additional 150 Dining Points will be loaded onto the TigerCards of students with unlimited meal plans at the start of the spring semester for a total of 300 Dining Points per year. Dining Points can be used to buy food and non-alcoholic beverages at all on-campus dining locations and select off-campus locations. Sophomores have the option to apply points to eating club or eating co-op spring dues. You can make a request to apply points to your eating club or co-op dues here.

Dining Points have a 1:1 value to dollars. Unused points from the fall roll over to the spring. All unused points at the end of the academic year expire.
