What is the difference between the new plan and the old plan?
The old plan was a traditional meal plan. There was one charge ($2,064.00) for the semester and you could eat all you wanted when the dining hall was open. You were charged this amount whether you ate the meals or not. With the new plan you pay for ONLY those items you select.
What do you mean by $65.00/week?
You will have that dollar amount available each week for use in the dining hall if you choose the $975 per semester meal plan. Your weekly balance will automatically be reduced by the cost of items that you select.
What if I run out of money can I still eat in the Dining Hall?
You can still purchase items by one of the following methods: cash, credit card, debit card or adding money on to a separate flex account.
When can I change my meal plan?
You will have until 5:00 pm on the fifth day of class each semester to change your meal plan.
If I did not select one of the new meal plans, which meal plan will I have?
All students who have not selected a meal plan will be assigned the $100.00/week ($1,500.00/semester) meal plan.
What if I only use $50.00/week or there is one week where I do not eat at all in the dining hall?
The dollar amount left at the end of each week will be forfeited. However, there will be convenience food options that you may purchase and take with you for future use.
What are the hours of the Dining Hall?
The Dining Hall will be open 7:00 am until 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday and closed on weekends.
How will I access the new meal plan?

Are there going to be other changes to the dining hall?
