Unused Baseline dining funds carry forward each semester. These funds become Baseline Plus Funds and are then usable at both dining and non-dining locations.
Yes! In the cafeterias the guests' charge will be based on their Baseline Plan participation or non-participation. The guest must possess and present a valid Stout OneCard in order to verify plan participation. If the guest is not a plan holder their charges will be at the special guest price in the cafeteria.
At the time your photo was taken for your UW-Stout OneCard, a contract was completed that opened a debit account with a zero balance. This account may be activated at any time simply by making a deposit. On-Campus debit plans are transferable ($10 minimum) between similar accounts only (ex. Baseline to Baseline; Flexline to Flexline.) Seller must be present to authorize transaction.
No. These funds are intended to be used on-campus and are not available for withdrawal while a student is actively enrolled or a faculty/staff member is employed.
Is a student is no longer enrolled, or faculty/staff member is no longer employed at UW-Stout, cardholders can no longer deposit into the account, only expend the remaining funds. All funds remain active in the card holder's account until there has been no activity for a 6-month period. After six months, any remaining funds are subject to a monthly service fee. Cardholders may also request to close the account. Status with the university will be confirmed prior to processing the account closure request and issuing a refund. Refund requests must be made by completing the Account Closure Form online or submitting a completed Account Closure Form to the Campus Card Office. Any remaining fee, will be processed according to the card holder's current preference selection.
Additional funds may be deposited throughout the semester.
On-line deposits can be made by the student or other individuals, such as parents, using a major debit/credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express & Discover).
Automated and Full Service Stations
Cash deposits can be a minimum of $1.00 at automated deposit machines. Cash, check, and debit/credit cards can be used at the CampusCard office to make deposits with a $10.00 minimum.
Student Fee Account Charge
Deposits may also be charged to the Student University Fee Account (subject to credit approval) with a minimum charge of $25.00.
The Baseline Plan is designed for maximum flexibility on campus. In addition to cafeteria meals, all other University Dining Service operations accept Baseline Account Funds.

Consider how often you will eat in the cafeteria dining location, and how often you may be eating outside the cafeteria at our ala carte (items priced individually) locations.
The average student spends $186 for cafeteria meals at the reduced price and $124 for dining at ala cart locations; a total of $310 per semester. This is an amount between Plan 2 and Plan 3. Students who consider themselves average may want to start with plan 2 or 3. Where you dine is the most important factor besides frequency of dining when you select a plan. Dining in Commons and at North Point the majority of the time is the most economical use of the plan.
Block Plan Dining Contracts are available at the Campus Card Office, Room 110, Merle Price Commons.
