Loper Dollars

Loper Dollars is a declining balance program that helps to provide a safer campus environment by minimizing the need to carry and use cash for daily expenses. Loper Dollars is an on-campus debit system administered by UNK and is not affiliated with any financial institution. You deposit money into your Loper Dollars account which creates a prepaid declining balance service. Each time you make a purchase, the purchase amount is subtracted from your Loper Dollars balance. Loper Dollars account balances do not earn interest. Loper Dollars carry over from semester to semester.

Everyone loves to save $$$ and saving 20% is not too shabby!

Use Loper Dollars to pay for purchases at on-campus dining locations to save 20% automatically! (Yes, this includes the coffee shops!)
