Adding Bear Bucks & Flex Dollars
4/20/2023 - Flex Dollar purchasing is paused until mid-August for the 23/24 academic year. Flex dollars expire at the end of the academic year (May 12, 2023). Should you require Flex Dollars knowing they expire, you may purchase them in person at the Student Accounts office OR instead purchase Bear Bucks that will not expire and carryover to next year!
We offer two convenient ways to add "money" to your KU ID card so you don't have to carry cash; Bear Bucks and Flex Dollars. Both of these can be purchased online easily and quickly!
Simply add the amount of bucks/dollars you want, add the item to your shopping cart and checkout! The funds will be available on your KU ID card within one hour!
These transactions will appear on a future bill showing the charge as well as the payment for transactional purposes.
