How many Dining Dollars do I need?
All of our campus eateries are retail outlets, so you pay for exactly what you want, without wasting food.   The average cost for a typical meal is approximately $6.50.  This will vary depending on your food preference, time of day, and the venue choice.   Dining Dollars may be purchased in any amount over $20, and can be purchased throughout the semester; however, in order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following suggested meal plans for each semester.

Gold Dining Plan: $1,500 (and above) Dining Dollars
(Receive 15% Bonus Dollars)
This plan will provide approximately 3 meals per day (2 meals on Sat), 6 days per week*. The cost of each meal will vary depending on the time of day and your personal eating habits and preferences.

Silver Dining Plan: $1000-$1499 Dining Dollars
(Receive 10% Bonus Dollars)
This plan will provide approximately 2 meals per day, 6 days per week**.  The cost of each meal will vary depending on the time of day and your personal eating habits and preferences.

Bronze Dining Plan: $500-$999 Dining Dollars
(Receive 5% Bonus Dollars)
This plan will provide approximately 1 meal per day, 6 days per week***.  The cost of each meal will vary depending on the time of day and your personal eating habits and preferences.

Please Note: All campus eateries are closed on Sundays. To meet student meal needs, grab & go and meal replacement food items are available for purchase during weekday and Saturday hours.

Having trouble selecting a meal plan?
Try considering your daily routine...Do you eat three meals a day?  Will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities and social events interfere with dining?  Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes?  Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to select a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle and needs.

How do I use Dining Dollars?
Your campus ID card (I-Card) will be credited with the amount of Dining Dollars corresponding with your meal plan, or any amount you choose to purchase.  Hand the cashier your I-card each time you make a food purchase, and your account balance will be reduced by the cost of your purchase.  You can use your Dining Dollars to purchase food anytime our retail dining facilities are open, and as many times a day as you like.  The choice is yours...you decide when, where, and how to use your Dining Dollars.

Dining Dollar Terms and Conditions:
If a refund of Dining Dollars is requested within two (2) weeks of purchase, there is no charge for processing.  However, after the two week period, a processing fee of $35 will be charged.  The balance of Dining Dollars will be refunded, minus any Bonus Dollars and the $35 processing fee.  As always, Dining Dollars roll over from semester to semester, and only expire after 1 year from the last time the Dining Dollars are used.
