On-Campus Food Purchases with Dining Dollars and FLEX Funds

When making food purchases at any of the dining locations on-campus (including the two markets), please specify from which account you would like to pay…Dining Dollars or FLEX.  These are two separate accounts that are accessible via your VSU 1Card, and the payment process will be expedited if you inform the cashiers of your payment preference.  Debit/credit cards and cash are accepted at most locations as well.
