  • Dragon Cash


    dragon cash

    Each academic year, all enrolled students living on campus and all undergraduate students taking twelve (12) or more credit hours who do not reside on campus will be assessed a $225 Campus Dining Fee during fall and spring semesters.

    Campus Dining Fee funds can be accessed through the students Dragon Cash account. Dragon Cash is a declining balance account that can be used for purchases at all UAB dining destinations.

    Enrolled students not assessed the Campus Dining Fee may elect to add $225 to their Dragon Cash account during fall and spring semesters by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

    Full-time non-residential students taking six hours or less on campus during a given semester may be exempt from the Campus Dining Fee during that semester. Courses offered online (excluding “blended” courses) or at a location more than 100 miles away from UAB’s campus are considered off-campus when determining eligibility for a waiver.

    Funds in the student’s Dragon Cash account will roll over during the terms included in one academic year (i.e. fall to spring to summer). After the last class day of summer semester, 25% of any remaining balance in a student’s Dragon Cash account will be converted to BlazerBucks before the Dragon Cash account is cleared out in preparation for the upcoming academic year.

    The Dragon Cash account is used for accessing Campus Dining Fee funds only. Individuals who wish to add additional funds can do so through their BlazerBucks account.
