  • Roll Over Flex: Any Flex, Add-On Flex or Bonus Flex left from the Fall semester will be automatically transferred into a Roll Over Flex Account during Winter break
  • Unused Flex Dollars will be carried over from fall to spring semester only
  • All Flex, Add-On Flex and Bonus Flex expire after the last day of Spring finals
  • Don't see Add-On Flex as an option on eAccounts? Contact the Coyote Card Office at 605-658-3559 or coyotecard@usd.edu to activate your account
  • Students who have exhausted their current meal plan may add an extra meal plan at any point in the semester. Additional meal plans will be added to the student's bill
  • Note: check your flex balances and the students need to contact Campus Dining if they want to submit any bulk orders to use their Flex dollars before they expire
  • Flex dollars are unable to be converted into other types of funds, such as Coyote Cash
