  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    All meal plans are annual so you will be automatically assigned the same plan you chose in the fall semester for the spring semester.

  • Will unused meals or Flex dollars roll over? 
    Your unused Flex dollars will roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester if you have an active spring plan.  All remaining funds at the end of the spring semester will not roll forward.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    Yes you can!  You have a designated time at the beginning of each semester to adjust your meal plan to fit your needs.

  • FERPA Information
Don’t worry - simplicity and convenience are all within reach. Once you have a meal plan, your student ID works like a debit card. Just swipe your card and the meals and points are deducted from your meal plan account.
