In addition to the student’s meal plan, the Loyola Express Card has the ability to carry Wolfbucks and debit dollars. These two functions have important differences of which the student should be aware.
Wolfbucks come with every meal plan, and additional Wolfbucks may be purchased any time by submitting a request. Wolfbucks may be used at dining locations at both Loyola University and Tulane University. Wolfbucks may only be used on food purchases at approved campus dining locations.
Wolfbucks offer parents peace of mind to know that those funds will be used by the student only for dining purposes. Wolfbucks also are tax-benefited, so the student pays less tax at dining locations.
Wolfbucks may be purchased separately in $100 increments. Wolfbucks will be added to the student’s Loyola ID Card and the bill will be applied directly to the student’s tuition account.
The Express Card is also a debit card. To utilize this function, the student or parent must deposit money with the Bursar’s Office and the appropriate amount will be credited to the student’s Express Card. Express Cash may be used at any food or retail location on Loyola’s campus, including the Bookstore, CC's, vending machines, and residence hall laundry machines, in addition to campus dining locations.
Contact the Bursar’s Office to add debit dollars.
