Flex Addition deposits offer students with a Major, Mega or Premium Flex Plan the opportunity to add money to their account and receive the same Flex discounts. Flex Additions money deposited into a Flex Plan is accessed automatically through your Hokie Passport ID card once the initial Flex Dollars are used. You can check your balance at any time on My VT; your balance will also appear on the receipt you receive after every time you access your account. Flex Additions will carry over/roll over and receive the Flex discount as long as you have purchased a major dining plan for that semester; otherwise they revert to Dining Dollars. Since Flex Dollars are only accepted in university dining centers, parents and guardians can be assured that this money will be spent only on food and beverages.

Flex Addition and Dining Dollar Deposits

Flex Additions and Dining Dollar deposits may be made online at any time during the year through My VT under the Personal Info tab. Flex Addition deposits carry over from year to year and remain stored on your Hokie Passport as long as you continue to purchase a major dining plan each semester, until you graduate or resign from the university. If you do not purchase a major dining plan in a given semester, your Flex Additions will revert to Dining Dollars. You can use our online tool for more instructions on adding money to your Dining Plan.

You can also make deposits at a cash-to-card machine, which can be found at

  • Dietrick Hall
  • G. Burke Johnston (GBI) Student Center
  • Owens and Hokie Grill at Owens Hall
  • Squires Student Center
  • Student Services Building
  • Turner Place at Lavery Hall
  • West End Market at Cochrane Hall

Flex Addition and Dining Dollar deposits may also be made via cash or check at the Hokie Passport Services located at 100 Student Services Building on campus.

If the Flex Addition or Dining Dollars account is not used for a period of 12 consecutive months, it will be closed according to state policy. Dining Dollars deposits carry over from year to year and remain stored on your Hokie Passport until you graduate or resign from the university (see Refunds & Terms).

Note: Minor dining plans cannot add Flex Additions
