What are Flex Dollars?

Flex money is money that has been placed on the KWC Student ID Card for students to use to pay for anything outside their meal purchase. In Subconnection there is a dollar amount set for LUNCH and DINNER, if the combo meal is outside the specified amount that is when the flex money kicks in to finalize sale. Students need to keep up with their balances. If flex money can't cover purchase, the student will be responsible for using cash or credit card to make their purchase. If a student would like to purchase a specialty drink from Jazzmans, snacks, or paying for a guest, they may use their flex money.

Do flex dollars rollover from semester to semester?
