• Dining Dollars

    Dining Dollars is a component of all New School meal plans. Unlike meal plans that offer a certain number of meals at certain times of day, Dining Dollars offers 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 Dining Dollars balance. Note that under New York State tax law, sponsored meal plans like 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. If a student moves out of a Dining Dollars residence before the end of the school year, a partial refund may be granted, depending on the circumstances. Refunds are issued by Student Accounts, not Student Housing.

    Visit the Meal Plans page to learn more about how New School meal plans work and how to change your meal plan or opt out.

    To see your Dining Dollars 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.
