Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to purchase a meal plan?

-Meal Plans are provided to students as a convenience, why wouldn’t you purchase a meal plan or dining dollars?

All freshman students living on campus and sophomore students who live in non-apartment style units are required to purchase a meal plan as a part of their Housing Contract.

 Commuter students are not required to purchase a meal plan but are encouraged to review the many plans available to see if one best fits your needs. Students have a choice to eat at either of the two dining locations on campus. Mitchell’s Dining Hall is our all -you –care- to -eat buffet style dining location where meal plans and dining dollars are accepted. Or try T- Rex Grill (Starbucks) which is our quick style grill and coffee shop where dining dollars can be used.

Can I change my meal plan if it does not fit my needs?

-Yes! You can change your meal plan if it does not fit your needs. Meal plans can be changed only during the first three days of classes, subject to proration and only if the dining dollar balance can be transferred to the new plan.

If I don’t eat my meals every week do they roll over from week to week?

-Meals from the previous week do not roll over if you purchased the per week meal plans A (18), or B (10) . The new week begins with breakfast on Fridays. If you are on any of the block meal plans C (175), D (75), E (50) meal numbers are per semester, they are good all semester until you’ve used up the specific number of meals. Which one is right for you?

May I bring a guest to dine with me using my meal plan?

-Yes!  You may bring a guest   to eat in Mitchell’s Dining Hall and the T-Rex Grill by using your dining dollars. If you have a block meal plan you may use your meals to pay for a guest in Mitchell’s as well. If you are on a weekly meal plan (A or B), your weekly meals can only be used for yourself.  You can always  use the dining dollars that come with your meal plan for your guests. Note: There will be special opportunities for you to use your dining dollars for guests!
