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 cover:

  • Drake dining facilities, including concession stands and C-store
  • Laundry
  • Printing costs

How to add funds

Funds can be added during business hours in the Student Services Center (credit or debit preferred, check and cash also accepted).  Cardholders and guests can also add funds online in our eAccounts portal.

A free mobile application is also available to add funds if you've saved a payment method in the main site.  You can download the Blackboard eAccounts application for either Apple or Android phones.

Any of these locations will not only allow you to make deposits to your Bulldog Bucks account, you can also check your remaining balances, recent transactions, view monthly statements, or mark a misplaced card as "lost".

Current Printing Policy

The University adds $20.00 of Bulldog Bucks for all full-time students to use during the Fall and Spring semesters, and $2.00 to use if enrolled in a J-term or Summer course.  These funds will be loaded into your account by noon on the first day of your semester.  These Bulldog Bucks can only be used for printing, and will be cleared if not used.  They cannot be used for food or laundry, and they will not carry forward to future semesters.  Print money for professional programs (Law and Pharmacy) will load at the start of their fall and spring semesters, which may not align with undergraduate timelines. 

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

If you are a full-time student that did not receive the printing allocation on your Bulldog Bucks account this semester, do not hesitate to contact us.

See below for an update on what your Printing balance may look like in the Papercut application.  The $20 balance currently labeled "Bulldog Bucks" is the amount loaded from the university for full-time students.
