Meal Plan/Dining Dollars

Meal Plan Change Requests

The University offers students a variety of meal plans. Meal plans are grouped in categories, and most categories include options. This enables students to choose a meal plan most suited to their particular preference. Because of this flexibility, requests to add or change a meal plan should be completed by the student by July 1st, but no later than August 1st for the Fall semester. For Spring semester changes must be completed by December 1st, but no later than the first business day of January.

Meal Plan changes and additions must be completed by the Student. To initiate a change, your student should follow the steps below. 

 Fall Semester

  • Meal plan changes after August 1st may not be in effect by the time you return to campus. If the meal plan change results in additional unpaid charges to your accountit may delay the completion of your registration.

 Spring Semester

  • Meal plan changes after the first business day of January may not be in effect by the time you return to campus. If the meal plan change results in additional unpaid charges to your accountit may delay the completion of your registration.

GoldPLUS

GoldPLUS is a convenient substitute for cash at on-campus locations and many off-campus businesses. GoldPLUS is accepted at all University Dining Services locations, PLUS the University Bookstore, Parking Services, Printing Services, Library Services, vending machines, and laundry machines. GoldPLUS is also accepted at over 75 local merchants, including eateries, retail stores, pharmacies, and other local shops. Additional GoldPLUS may be added year round, as GoldPLUS carries over from semester to semester, and year to year. Funds cannot be withdrawn from a GoldPLUS account, but unused GoldPLUS dollars less a small administrative termination fee are refundable to the student after graduation.
