Running low on meal money?  Simply add Panther Bucks by completing the online Panther Bucks Addition form.  Unused Panther Bucks Additions are refundable down to the meal plan requirement amount.  Student’s accounts must be in good financial standing in order to charge additions. 

Student Account Charging

In order to facilitate use of campus based services, the Campus Card can be used for Bookstore purchases, meal plan additions, event tickets, and other campus related items. These purchases are reflected in the monthly statements.

The responsibility rests with the student and parent to determine appropriate use for their individual situation. While there is not a set charging limit, BSC reserves the right to revoke charging privileges.

The BSC Bookstore also accepts cash, checks, and credit/debit cards.
