Dining Plans

Dining plans are available for every student at Azusa Pacific University and can be used at all on-campus dining locations. See our 2018-19 Dining Plan Booklet for more information.

A valid APU student ID card is required to access funds from the dining plan.

Students can sign up for a dining plan online (you will need to log in to home.apu.edu with your APUNetID and password), or you can stop by the One Card Office to fill out a contract. Please note that the online sign-up option is not available for freshmen until mid-June.

Cougar Bucks

Students and/or parents can deposit money into an account called Cougar Bucks. The APU student ID card 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 CASHNET. There is a minimum $20 deposit each time you deposit at the One Card Office and cash withdrawals are not permitted. Cougar Bucks are not transferable.

Cougar Bucks can be used at all Dining Services venues, the University Bookstore, the Computer Store, Azusa Print + Design, library printers, and Chick-fil-A, located at the corner of Citrus and Alosta avenues.

A statement of transactions can be obtained using a request form available at the One Card Office. 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.

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.
