BearBucks™ Program Notice

As of July 1, 2013 the off-campus BearBucks™ program has been discontinued. BearBucks™ are now accepted only at locations on the Baylor University campus in Waco.

The off-campus BearBucks™ program provided a valuable service to students when it was created in 2002, but in recent years student participation declined as students relied on the convenience of personal debit and/or credit cards. The decision to terminate the off-campus program was a joint one between Baylor and Wells Fargo Bank, our program administrator. This decision was also driven by the fact that the existing merchant equipment had become obsolete and no longer repairable, and the Bank can no longer provide staffing for a program that was the only one of its kind left.

Baylor will continue to accept BearBucks™ at the following locations on campus:

  • Baylor Dining Services
  • Baylor Bookstore
  • - SUB Food Court (BDSC)
  • Baylor Computer Repair Center
  • - Atrium Café (Science)
  • Baylor Theater Box Office
  • - Moe's (Science)
  • Central Duplicating
  • - Which Wich (Science)
  • Game Room (BDSC)
  • - P.O.D. Market (Speight, EV)
  • All Laundry Facilities on campus
  • - The Village Bakery (EV)
  • Mail Room (BDSC)
  • - Red Mango (EV)
  • McLane Student Life Center
  • - Season's Sushi (NV)
  • Select Athletic Concessions
  • - Starbucks (Dutton, Moody)
  • Select Campus Copy Machines

  • - Terrace Café (RT)
    - Brooks Great Hall

    - Penland Food Court
    - East Village Dining Commons

    We understand that some students may need access to the funds in their BearBucks™ account in order to make purchases off campus after July 1, 2013. If you wish to request a refund of all or a portion of your BearBucks™ balance by Direct Deposit (recommended) or by check to your home address as listed in BearWeb, you may e-mail Cashiers_Office@baylor.edu. You may also come to the Cashier's Office during business hours to receive your refund (photo ID required, limits apply). As long as your student account is current, your BearBucks™ balance will be refunded upon request.

    We regret any inconvenience this may cause. We anticipate that the on-campus BearBucks™ program will continue to be a valuable benefit to Baylor students.
