The following applies to all meal plans:

  • Flex Dollars roll Fall to Spring, even if board-optional housing resident elects “No Plan” for Spring, and expire at end of academic year.
  • Flex Dollars cannot be used at Slayter from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Meal Plans are NOT transferable to other students or guests.
  • You can ask any cashier to check the balance on your account.

Flex Dollars:

All plans have a specific amount of Flex Dollars for the student to use. As the student uses Flex Dollars for purchases, the balance declines. Flex Dollars not used during Fall semester will roll to the student’s Spring semester meal plan. Unused Flex Dollars are forfeited at the end of the academic year.

Students use their Flex Dollars to purchase meals at various venues on campus. Each meal has an associated price. This price is discounted at Curtis, Huffman and the Nest when purchased using a meal plan. For 2017-2018, the rates for meal plan participants are as follows:

  • Curtis and Huffman Dining halls: $6 for Breakfast; $7 for Lunch; $8 for Dinner ($9 for Special/Holiday Dinners)
  • The Nest: $8 for Dinner - Select Menu Items ($9 for Special/Holiday Dinners)
  • Slayter Market: Retail prices, based upon selection
  • Meal plan purchases are not available at Slayter Monday-Friday 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
