Meal Plan Cancellations:

A residential meal plan is required for all freshmen and sophomores living in residence halls during Fall and Spring semesters. Residential and commuter meal plans may be changed during the first two weeks of the semester. Cancellation of any meal plan after the first day of classes results in a cancellation fee of $50. In addition, students with residential meal plans will be charged, on a prorated basis, according to the number of days from the start of the semester to the date of cancellation plus any used dining dollars (if applicable). Students, Faculty/Staff, with commuter meal plans will be charged per meal swipe used plus any used dining dollars (if applicable) upon cancellation. Refunds are only available for the first meal plan purchased during the semester.

Unused meal plan balances or dining dollars are not transferrable  to another student, faculty or staff member. All meal plans expire at the end of each semester.

Refunds:

Any allowable refund will be refunded based on the method of payment for the meal plan. For a meal plan payment made in person at The Office of Student Accounts or deducted from a student's account, refunds will be processed via a credit to the student's account and remitted with a refund check. Faculty and staff will also receive a refund either on a credit card or with a check.
