Last spring, we announced the DB Bonus program, awarded to those returning residents that completed an on campus living application for the 2015-2016 year by April 8 and also purchased a qualifying meal plan by May 1.

Eligible recipients have been notified of their status and the Bonus will be added directly to their accounts the third week of September, once their on campus residential status has been verified.

This Bonus will not be combined with pre-existing declining balance funds, but will be in a separate account on the card. The funds will work exactly like declining balance though.

Please wait until the week of September 28 to call us with questions, if the Bonus has not been deposited properly to the student account. Calls may be directed to 704-687-7501.
