Meal Plan Change Request

Instructions for Completing Your Request to Change/Add Meal Plan

The University offers students a variety of meal plans. Meal plans are grouped in categories, and most categories include several options. This enables students to choose a meal plan most suited to their particular preference. Because of this flexibility, we receive many requests to add or change a meal plan. In order to accommodate these requests and have the changes completed by the student's arrival on campus, we require this “REQUEST TO CHANGE MEAL PLAN” form be received in our office by July 1st, but no later than August 1st for the Fall semester. For Spring semester the form must be received in our office by December 1st, but no later than the first business day of January.

· If you return your meal plan request by December 1st(Spring) or July 1st(Fall), the correct meal plan and charge will appear on your semester bill.

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 account, it 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 account, it may delay the completion of your registration.

Dining Dollars versus GoldPLUS

Dining Dollars are acquired by students as part of a meal plan. Dining Dollars are good for purchases made from University Dining Services ONLY. Unused Dining Dollars transfer from Fall semester to Spring semester (providing the student remains on a University meal plan). However, unused Dining Dollars EXPIRE at the end of the Spring semester. Because Dining Dollars are part of a Meal Plan, they are non-refundable.

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 Funds cannot be withdrawn from a GoldPLUS account, but any unused GoldPLUS is refunded to the student after graduation.
