Dining Dollars roll over from the fall to spring semester as long as you have a valid account for the sprint semester. For example, if a student has 130 Dining Dollars remaining at the end of the fall semester and they are getting 300 Dining Dollars with their spring meal plan they will start with 430 Dining Dollars in the spring. At the end of the spring semester any Dining Dollars that have not been used will be lost. Due to their special tax free set up they cannot be refunded. More information: Dining Dollars
