Nichols College created the Bison Bucks program to be the ultimate complement to your university experience. Your Nichols Student ID can be used for dining on campus, but we realize that students and parents want more. So we partnered with your favorite off campus merchants to give you the ultimate flexibility, variety and value you deserve.
The Bison Bucks system is BUILT RIGHT INTO your existing Nichols ID card. Every student meal plan (except for the 19 Meal Plan) includes some initial Bison Bucks. Bison Bucks can only be used for FOOD purchases.
How does Bison Bucks work?
Simple. Your Nichols ID card can be used like a debit card for FOOD purchases. The card gets swiped at the time of purchase at participating locations. The tab is deducted from your Bison Bucks account
and the balance is automatically adjusted. No more digging into your spending money, late night stops at the ATM or charging up credit cards.
You've heard of rollover minutes? Well, any deposits you make to your Bison Bucks account will roll over from fall semester to spring.
However, any initial Bison Bucks you receive with your meal plan will be forfeited at the end of the Spring semester.
