Bulldog Bucks

Bulldog Bucks provide a flexible and convenient way to purchase everything from food to a load of laundry. Simply load funds onto your Drake Card and scan like you would a debit or credit card instead of using cash. Bulldog Bucks will be cleared at the end of each academic year (end of spring semester—May).

Bulldog Bucks cover:

  • Laundry
  • Printing costs ($20 pre-loaded and allocated for printing only, must add own funds beyond $20)
  • Drake dining facilities, including concession stands and C-store

Bulldog Bucks can be used for printing, but for printing costs, technical printing support or information about the PaperCut system, contact Drake Technology Services.

For any additional questions or concerns about your Bulldog Bucks account, do not hesitate to contact us.

**8/26/14 note: $20 printing load HAS been added for the semester.  It is labeled differently than it has been in the past, due to the new integration with the Bulldog Bucks program.  The $20 balance currently labeled "Bulldog Bucks" is the amount loaded from the university.

How to add funds

Students can add funds any time. Visit blueView "My Drake Account" tab to add funds.


COMING SOON: Parents or “guests” will be able to log and add funds to a student account.

Bulldog Bucks accounts are covered by the Family Education Rights Privacy Act (FERPA)—the University can only release account information to the student or authorized users. If you need balance or spending information, ask your student to authorize you. Authorization information is available to current students in blueView on the Student Services tab.
