Students—Making Online Deposits to your Bulldog Bucks Account (How-to)

The Drake eAccounts system allows you to easily add Bulldog Bucks to your card. In addition to basic deposits, you can save payment methods, setup scheduled deposits, and use the Mobile Application to quickly make a deposit on-the-go (this requires a saved payment method in the main site).

Please note that all funds deposited independently by the cardholder are categorized as Bulldog Bucks.  You cannot deposit specifically to your "print account" or "dining account" - those are accounts that can only be filled by the University.  Bulldog Bucks are an optional/supplemental account, and funds deposited are going to cover any type of expense that is required after your University filled accounts have been depleted (food, printing, bookstore purchases, postal purchases, off campus purchases).

2. Add Money
