Flex Dollars are cash values included in select meal plans. They work like a pre-paid debit card with funds kept on your Hornet Card. Flex may be used at any on-campus dining location, as well as a variety of off-campus establishments that are listed on our website. 

Hornet Dollars are dollar for dollar funds added to an identification card to be used in the campus bookstore to purchase books, supplies, and SU gear. Hornet Dollars are also available to be used in any on-campus dining location. they are used in the same manner as Flex Dollars, but Hornet Dollars transfer from semester to semester and never expire. 

The Meal Exchange program is available to use at specific locations in the Brandt Student Center and at Buzzie's Restaurant. Each location has a variety of set meals for students to choose from. One meal deal equals one swipe. If your selections exceed the meal total, you many use Flex, Hornet Dollars, cash, or credit to pay the balance.
