The DART Machine has three options initially
(right): "Balance Inquiry", "Deposit Cash to Account", and "Purchase Card". Everything is self-explanatory and easy to
follow. A couple of things to remember:

need to buy a card.
- DART machines are CASH ONLY.
- DART machines DO NOT give back change.
- DART machines only accept bills up to
- A temporary card costs $1.
- The temporary card starts with no money on the account.
- Please allow up to 15 minutes for the
funds to post to your card.
- You can add also funds to a DART card at the Dining & Plus Account Office (www.uky.edu/PlusAccount) using cash, check or credit card.
If you already have a card and wish to inquire
about the balance or to add money, you must select one of the
option above and then insert your card into the reader as shown
in the left picture. Your card must be upside down with the
magnetic strip facing right in order for it to read properly. To
add money, you will insert the money as shown into the bill
reader presented in the right picture.
If you wish to purchase a card, you must
select the 'Purchase Card' option and insert only a $1 bill. Any
other bill will result in a loss of money. After you have
purchased a card, it will be dispensed from the card dispenser
in the left picture. After all of your transactions are
completed, it will give you a receipt for your records from the
receipt bin in the right picture.
