CockyBucks is a new program for all Freshman not required to have a meal plan that are taking 6 or more hours of in-person or hybrid classes starting this fall. We have started this program to help all students take advantage of on-campus benefits that they may not have before. Any remaining balance rolls over to semesters while enrolled at JSU.

How much does it cost?

All students who qualify for CockyBucks will have a $275 fee applied to their account after registration each semester. The funds will be made available on the first day of class, and students will be able to spend that $275 using their student ID card at the list of locations below.

Even though only certain students automatically qualify for this benefit, all students will have the option to load funds directly to their accounts through JSU OneWeb. This also means students who spend their original $275 will have the option to load more funds to their account as well.

CockyBucks can be spent at the following locations:

  • All TMB Food Court Vendors
  • Jack Hopper Dining Hall
  • Virtual Dining Options (Mr. Beast Burger, Buddy V’s Cakes, Mariah Carey’s Cookies, Pardon My Cheesesteak)
  • We Proudly Serve
  • Swirl
  • WOW!
  • All campus food truck vendors
