    Flexi Dollars

    With Flexi Dollars you can make transactions in the Bookstore, Library, and Mail Center.

    LION Dollars

    LION Dollars (L, I, O, N Plans) are required for all students living in traditional (non-apartment) residence halls. These plans are California sales-tax exempt, are non-refundable and are purchased at the beginning of the school year. The funds must be used during the LION Plan contract year (August - July).
