FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are Goat Bucks separate from residential and commuter/voluntary meal plans?

Yes - the Goat Bucks declining balance account is separate from all meal plans and meal plan bonus points.

Even if you have a meal plan with bonus points, you should still maintain a Goat Bucks account for accessing campus services such as library copier and printers and bookstore purchases, and for use at additional on- and off-campus dining locations. Unlike bonus points, Goats Bucks do not expire at the end of term.

How do Goat Bucks differ from dining and auxiliary points?

Beginning in July 2013, Goats Bucks replaced both dining and auxiliary points as the one and only form of WPI ID Card currency. Goat Bucks can be used to purchase food and services that previously required either dining or auxiliary points.

If you had dining and auxiliary point balances in July 2013 they were automatically transferred to an equal number of Goat Bucks.
