The point system works best when you follow a budget all year. Cashiers may give current balances any time the card is used.

There are no equivalencies and no breakfast, lunch or dinner times. Whatever you spend on your meal is deducted from your Dining Points account.


  • Meal plan points may be rolled over during the academic year. Points will expire August 31st if a new meal plan for the next academic year is not purchased between July 1 and August 31. (Only your free bonus points will expire)
  • Points may ONLY be used in the University Grounds Coffee Shop, the Food Court, and the Library Bistro.
  • Faculty & Staff points will roll over as long as they are employed by IU Southeast.

Employee Meal Plans

Like the student meal plan, employees can open an employee meal plan by contacting the Bursars office. The employee meal plan provides for the same ‘bonus points” program as listed above. The employee meal plans begin immediately upon opening and continue until used. You have seven days from the last day of employment to use your points; after seven days your points will expire.

Purchasing UCard Meal Plan

Dining Points may be purchased in the Bursar’s office. Download the application form. The completed form can be brought to the Bursar’s office with payment or you may fax the form to (812) 941-2639 and contact us at (812) 941-2335 for payment.

Card holders are responsible for purchases made on lost or stolen cards; therefore, if your UCard has been lost or stolen, please contact the Bursars office immediately by phone at (812) 941-2335 or deactivate your card under "Manage Your UCard." Replacement fee of $25.00 will be charged for lost cards.
