Follett Bucks can be used in the University Store at ORU to purchase any items including books, apparel and snacks. Students who have excess funds from their financial aid may be able to transfer the excess funds to their Eagle Card in the form of Follett Bucks. Students can transfer funds online at vision.oru.edu during the first two weeks of the semester. After that two-week period, funds may be transferred to Follett Bucks at Student Accounts. Unused Follett Bucks will rollover to the next semester but are non-refundable.
Eagle Bucks are a convenient debit account right on your ORU ID card. It provides a convenient form of payment for services and restaurants on and off campus. You may deposit funds into your Eagle Bucks account at the Eagle Card Center located on LRC 3 or online at www.oru.edu/eaglecard
Eagle Bucks can be used both on campus AND off campus. You can swipe your card all over campus to pay for the meals you eat everyday at Sodexo dining locations, including concessions for most of the ORU games at the Mabee Center and Johnson Stadium.
Eagle Bucks can also be used at the ORU Business Center, University Store, Library, Student Health Services, ORU Telephone Center, Campus Post Office, campus copiers, and ORU vending and laundry machines with card readers. When students use Eagle Bucks at Sodexo restaurants on campus and at CityPlex instead of cash, they save approximately 13% on food purchases.
