A required dining plan can be petitioned only for medical reasons. If you have a medical condition that you believe may keep you from maintaining a required dining plan, please refer to the following steps in the Special Dietary Requests (PDF). If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, contact diningservices@apu.edu.

Cougar Bucks

Students and/or parents can deposit money into an account called Cougar Bucks. The APU student ID card, or virtual ID card via the APU Mobile app, is used to access these funds. Deposits for Cougar Bucks can be made with cash, check, or credit card at the One Card Office or via the GET website or GET Mobile App. There is a minimum $5 deposit each time you add funds and cash withdrawals are not permitted. Cougar Bucks are not transferable. See below for detailed instructions on adding funds via GET:

Cougar Bucks can be used at all Dining Services venues, the University Bookstore, the Computer Store, Azusa Print + Design, and library printers.

All transactions debited through the APU ID card are final at the point and time of sale. It is the responsibility of the cardholder to keep a record of each card transaction. These transactions can be accessed through their GET account. For questions about adding funds to an ID card, email GET@apu.edu.

Lost or Damaged ID Cards

If a student ID card is lost or stolen, it can be replaced for $20. Lost cards should be reported to the One Card Office. Damaged ID cards can be replaced for $5.
