Meal Plan FAQs

What is meal equivalency?


Meal equivalency is a convenient and flexible option which allows you to dine in our retail location at no additional cost.




Can I “treat” a guest by using two meals in a meal period?


Your meal plan is non-transferable and does not allow you to “treat” a guest. Your guest will have to pay the daily rate posted at the entrance of the Dining Hall.




If I don’t use all my meals in one week, do they carry over to the next week?


Meals do not carry over from week to week. A board week goes from Monday–Sunday.




Why should I sign up for a commuter meal plan?


  • SAVE BIG! - Purchasing a commuter meal plan will save you money on your meals instead of purchasing your meals individually.
  • HASSLE-FREE! - Enjoy a wholesome and delicious meal without searching for cash.
  • CONVENIENT! - Don't waste gas or lose your parking spot.
  • EASY PAYMENT! - Use Financial Aid Dollars, Mastercard, Visa or Cash to purchase your plan.
