Griffin Bucks

Use Griffin Bucks at Griffin Grill and the Ryan Dining Hall

Add money on your student account in the business office. Each additional $25 applied to your account receives a 10% bonus to the total. Griffin Bucks balance carries over from the fall semester to the spring semester but not from spring to the following fall. Griffin Bucks can be used through the last day of June every year. Balances are not refundable.

All on-campus residents can use this in addition to their meal plan but it does not replace the meal plan.

Students who want to add money to their GriffinBucks account can do so either in person (using cash/check) or online paying with credit/debit/electronic check. If you wish to pay for them online, please follow these steps:

1. Login to
2. Click ‘my ledger’
3. Click ‘make payment through Cashnet’

Once on Cashnet, click the option to ‘make a payment’ and select GriffinBucks from the list of available items. You will enter the amount you wish to add and then checkout with your preferred payment method. Once the transaction is complete, please call the Business Office at 314-889-1405 (or come by Ryan 215 in person) to ensure the funds are added to your account.
