Aggie Cash Plans

Aggie Cash is a declining balance (debit) account students, staff and faculty use to purchase food at UC Davis Dining Services locations.

Aggie Cash is also one of two components included in the residence hall and Student Housing Apartment (SHA) dining plans. All dining plans come with Aggie Cash.


  • Transforms the AggieCard (UC Davis ID card) into a debit card with a finite amount of available funds
    • Convenient - one card "does it all"
    • Safer than bank cards and credit cards
  • Accepted at many on-campus dining locations
  • Decreases the need to carry cash
  • Purchases are not taxed (for Aggie Cash accounts associated with a residence hall or SHA meal plan only)
  • Purchases receive a 10% discount at most locations
  • Balances roll over quarter-to-quarter and expire at the end of the academic year*
    • *Aggie Cash not automatically included with a meal plan also rolls over year-to-year
  • Automatically included with residence hall or SHA meal plans and optionally available in any amount without a residence hall or SHA meal plan
  • Additional Aggie Cash may be added to the AggieCard during the year

How It Works

Aggie Cash account holders make purchases at on-campus retail food locations using their AggieCard just as one would using a bank debit card. Balance transactions are deducted from the Aggie Cash account, until the account is exhausted.

Who Can Get Aggie Cash

Students with a residence hall or SHA Meal Plan

Aggie Cash is automatically included in residence hall and SHA meal plans. Review a meal plan description to see how much Aggie Cash comes with a given plan.

Plans for Students, Staff and Faculty (those without a residence hall or SHA dining commons meal plan)

Aggie Cash is available for purchase by UC Davis students who do not live in Student Housing (and don't have a meal plan), as well as faculty and staff.
