Pace University students walking on the Pleasantville campus.

Flex and Voluntary (Dawg) Dollars and Swipes

Flex Dollars

All full-time students will be given Flex Dollars as part of their meal plan. The Flex Dollar program enables students to use their Pace One Card in all our on-campus dining locations, bookstores, vending machines, and on the Westchester campus, at Pace Delivers. Students can also use Flex Dollars off- campus at local restaurants and eateries within the immediate areas of our New York and Westchester campus locations, and wherever Grubhub is offered. The amount of Flex Dollars varies according to each student's meal plan, and we offer meal plans with additional Flex Dollars (PDF) which can be requested by submitting a Meal Plan Upgrade Form.

Please note that, as part of the meal plan, Flex Dollars are non-refundable. *Effective for the 2021-2022 academic year, all incoming students, regardless of grade level, meal plan balances will rollover for the current academic year and must be used by end of the Spring semesters. Meal plan balances are non-refundable and unused funds will be forfeited. For students enrolled prior to July 1, 2021, the meal plan balances will continue to roll over until graduating or leaving the university, phasing out with the graduating class of 2024. Meal plan balances are non-refundable and unused funds will be forfeited.

View your available meal plan balance, including Flex and Voluntary (Dawg) Dollars at any time at the Point of Sale terminal in the Café, through the eAccounts website, or any Auxiliary Services office.

Voluntary (Dawg) Dollars and Swipes

Students can add Voluntary (Dawg) Dollars and Swipes as supplements to their meal plans.

Voluntary (Dawg) Dollars work the same as Flex Dollars. All additional funds added by students are considered Dawg Dollars. Dawg Dollars are refundable by request if unused, while Flex Dollars are not. Voluntary Swipes work the same as regular Swipes, and can roll-over to the following week up to a maximum of 30 swipes.

Students may add Voluntary (Dawg) Dollars and Swipes at any time throughout the semester. To add Dawg Dollars or Swipes to your account, use the Pace mobile app, visit Student Accounts, add funds online via credit card or check, or ask any Dining Service Manager at an on-campus dining location. Please note, funds added through our online platform after 6:00 p.m. Eastern will not be available until 9:00 a.m. Eastern next business day.

Should you have specific questions regarding the new program or experience any difficulties using your Flex/Dawg Dollars, please email Auxiliary Services or call 1 (877) 722-3431.
