Use of Accounts


The McDaniel 1Card enables students to access three separate accounts: McDaniel Bucks, McDaniel Bucks 50, and Meal Plan. Each account must be funded prior to use and has unique rules for acceptance and the roll over of funds (see the summary chart below).

McDaniel Bucks

McDaniel Bucks is a prepaid spending account offering a safe and convenient way to make purchases both on campus and off campus. It is designed to eliminate the need to carry cash or other cards. You or your parents must make a deposit to McDaniel Bucks prior to using it for purchases. Value in McDaniel Bucks rolls over every semester and year for as long as you are a member of the McDaniel College Community.

Meal Plan

All resident students are entitled to either an unlimited meal plan or block plan which allows you meal access at the Englar Dining Hall plus McDaniel Bucks 50. Block plans meal plans must be used up within the 2 semesters and do not roll over year-to-year.
