Paw Points

Certain meal plan options include Paw Points. Paw Points add on-campus dining flexibility by allowing purchases in our retail locations and Vending machines with just a swipe of your ID card. Different from Bulldog Bucks, all Paw Points purchases are tax free as they are a part of the meal plan and are designated for purchases at Food Services' locations and Vending only. Points are deducted with each purchase. Balances can be viewed through the Blackboard Transact eAccounts App available in the App Store. Unused points at the end of Fall semester will be added to Spring semester's balance. Meal plans end after the last serving day of each academic year contract so be sure to use any remaining points by the end of Spring semester. 

Join

To become a meal plan participant, a UGA student will need to return a signed meal plan agreement either electronically via our website (www.foodservice.uga.edu) or by turning it into the Food Services' Administration Office located in the lower level of Snelling Dining Commons.  UGA Food Services then transmits this information to the UGA Bursar’s Office and the meal plan charge is posted to the student’s account. The Bursar’s Office sends notification right away of the meal plan charge posting along with the payment due date (about a week before the academic term begins) to the student via an e-mail message.

The meal plan agreement is a full academic year contract.  However, the charge for each semester will be due on student accounts in August and December respectively.  The charge for Spring Semester is posted to the student account in November.

Students may join the meal plan at any time.  The payment due date will depend on the date the contract is received.  Prorating of the cost begins after the third week of meal plan service.The Bursar’s Office accepts cash, check, money orders, and MasterCard, Discover and American Express cards for payment on student accounts.  Food Services cannot accept payment for student accounts.

The UGA Card is used by meal plan customers for access into meal plan facilities. With state-of-the-art biometric identification technology, the system verifies a participant's eligibility by the unique size and shape of his or her hand.  Cards are obtained at the UGACARD ID Center located in the Tate Student Center.
