*There has been some confusion over Thunder Bucks vs. Flex Points & Dining Dollars. The money that is attached to your meal plan is called FLEX POINTS & DINING DOLLARS. It is not Thunder Bucks. It can be used in Food Services areas ONLY. It can not be used in the bookstore, vending machines, or the laundry machines. The Meal Plans with Flex Points or Dining Dollars expires at the end of each semester. Thunder Bucks rollover into the next semester.
