Enrollment Services will cancel the meal plan for students who are participating on a travel study or an off-campus program requiring them to be away from campus the entire semester.

Meal Plan Changes

Change requests can only be executed during the first four class days of the semester. After this date, no changes can be made for the current semester. 


Meal plan assignments for the fall semester are continued into the spring semester unless we are notified and directed otherwise. Unused food points move with you from fall to spring semester for students with an active meal plan. If a meal plan is canceled during the academic year, any food points from a prior semester will be forfeited. At the end of spring semester, unused food points and meals terminate. They are not refundable nor are they transferrable to the new academic year.
