During your stay at Juniata College, you will live in one of the residence halls with another Juniata student. The Center for International Education works with the Residence Life staff to match each international student with an American student, but sometimes this may not be possible. One great option we have available is our Global Village living and learning communities. Learn more about the Global Village here. Visit Juniata’s Residential Life web site for more information about life in the residence halls.

Declining Cash Balance Dollars

The declining balance dollars (DCB dollars) allow purchases in Baker Refectory, Jitters, On the Go! Café, Beeghly Library 365 Market and Parkhurst Dining catering. Moneys from the DCB account may also be used by students to pay for any guests they bring to the dining hall. All declining cash balances (DCBs) associated with meal plans that are not used by the end of each academic year will be forfeited. Additional DCB Dollars may be purchased throughout the semester.

Both meal plans include DCB Dollars. These provide great value when used for a cup of coffee or a snack between classes. Any remaining DCB will transfer from Fall semester to Spring semester, but will not transfer from Spring semester to the following school year.
