  • Dining Dollars / Dining Dollars Plus

    Dining Dollars and Dining Dollars Plus are components of all New School meal plans. Unlike meal plans that offer a certain number of meals at certain times of day, Dining Dollars and Dining Dollars Plus offer complete flexibility in what and when you choose to eat in the cafeterias. When you are ready to pay for your meal, swipe your newcard at the cash register, and the cost of the transaction will be deducted from your balance.

    Dining Dollars

    Dining Dollars can be used at all New School cafeterias (listed below). Purchases made with Dining Dollars are exempt from sales tax.

    Any money left in your Dining Dollars account at the end of the fall semester will roll forward to the spring semester, but balances remaining at the end of the spring semester are forfeited. It is not possible to transfer funds between Dining Dollars, Dining Dollars Plus, and Newcard Cash. If a student moves out of a college residence before the end of the school year, a partial refund may be granted, depending on the circumstances. 

    To see your Dining Dollars/Dining Dollars Plus/Newcard Cash balance and/or add money to your Newcard Cash balance, log on to the Newcard Cash portal with your NetID and password. Instructions for parents and other first-time guest users can be found on the Newcard Cash page.

    Dining Dollars Plus

    Dining Dollars Plus can also be used at New School cafeterias, as well as off-campus food merchants. All purchases made with Dining Dollars Plus incur a sales tax. At the cafeterias, the cash register automatically charges the Dining Dollars account first (the tax-free option), but once your Dining Dollars have been used up, the system will charge your Dining Dollars Plus account (taxable). 

    Any funds remaining in your Dining Dollars Plus account at the end of the spring semester will automatically be refunded to your student account. Balances cannot be transferred between Dining Dollars, Dining Dollars Plus, and Newcard Cash credit.

    To see your Dining Dollars/Dining Dollars Plus/Newcard Cash balance and/or add money to your Newcard Cash balance, log on to the  Newcard Cash portal with your NetID and password.
