Meal Plan FAQs

What is a Meal Plan?


A meal plan is a program that enables students to eat a select number of meals at the dining hall during a given meal period. The meals per week allowance allow you to enjoy a certain number of meals each week for the semester. You can use your meals Monday through Friday for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and on Saturday and Sunday for Brunch and Dinner in our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall as well as in our retail location. Each time you use a meal, it is subtracted from your weekly balance. Meals do not carry over from week to week and the meal plan resets every Sunday night. A valid student identification card must be presented in order to enter the dining halls and your card is non transferable.
