Thank you for your interest in having Dining Services and the R-Card Office assist you with your event.  Below is a step-by-step process on what you will need to do before your event.  Our goals are to make the process as smooth as possible, so you and your organization can spend more time on enjoying your event rather than planning.

  • Contact Dining Services Catering Department to discuss the event.

  • Fill out the Student Organization Account Application for Catering for those requesting pay with Meal Plan or TAR BUC$.

    • Please fill in the fields clearly to ensure accurate transactions and to avoid delayed processing.

    • Requesting organizer must fill out the top portion in its entirety.

    • Requesting organizer must also instruct the attendees to ensure that they have sufficient funds in their Meal Plan or TAR BUC$ account before they can sign.

    • Each student, faculty and staff member must print their name, R-Number and total amount for all events. 

      • There is a limit of $60 that can be used per person per event.

      • Each transaction is subject to Florida state sales tax (6.5%) and must be included in the amount on the application.

      • A signature is required to authorize the transaction.

    • The “Funds Used From” section is for office use only.  Meal Plans will always be deducted first.  If Meal Plan funds are unavailable, then TAR BUC$ will be used.

    • If there are insufficient funds, the transactions will not be processed and the organization will be held responsible for any outstanding balances.

  • Submit the form to the R-Card office no later than one week before the scheduled event.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.  We look forward to working with you on making your catered event a great success!
