Faculty and Staff Flex Dollars
All current University of California, Berkeley faculty and staff with a valid Cal 1 Card are eligible to purchase Faculty and Staff Flex Dollars. An employee who is also a registered student of the University may only purchase an Off-Campus meal plan.
Flex dollars work on a declining balance basis. Flex dollars may be used in the dining commons, campus restaurants, convenience stores, and to pay for guest meals at a discount from the cash price in the dining commons.
Flex dollars function like cash dollars—1 flex dollar has the purchasing power of $1. For example, a purchase of $2.01 would cost 2.01 flex dollars. Flex dollars cannot be refunded, transferred to another meal plan holder, or canceled.
