2013-2014 Meal Plan FAQ
Q: Does my tuition bill include the price of the meal plan?
A: Yes, Room & Board charges are listed separately from tuition charges on your invoice.
Q: If paying through Touchnet (Web Payment Gateway), can the Dining Service plans be added to the payment plan, and how do I go about it?
A: Meal plans are automatically added to the payment plans when the charge is added to your bill. Your bill will be automatically adjusted for the next payment that is due and withheld from your cash account or charged to your credit card.
Q: Do I have to have a meal plan?
A: ALL resident students MUST choose one of the Colonel Meal Plans. Commuter and off-campus students are not required to have a meal plan, but may chose any of the Colonel or Commuter plans.
Q: Can I choose any plan that I want?
A: All first-time freshmen students residing on campus MUST choose the Gold or Gold Plus Plan only. Beginning Fall 2013, sophomore residents will be required to choose one of our resident meal plans, excluding the Senior Value Plan. Any Resident Senior (students who have completed at least 90 credits or more by the first day of class) can choose the new Senior Value Plan, if desired. All other students may choose a plan most suited to their individual needs.
Q: What is the Senior Value Plan?
A: This plan is available only to Resident Seniors (students who have completed at least 90 credits or more by the first day of class and reside in on-campus housing). The plan includes 100 meals (usable at any time in Henry’s Café) plus $300 in Dining Dollars and $75 in Flex Dollars per semester. Any unused meals or dollars from the Fall semester will carry over to the Spring Semester. A new Senior Value Plan will also be added in Spring (e.g. if you have 20 meals and $25 dining dollars left from fall, you will have 120 meals and $325 dining dollars in the Spring). Unused meals and/or dollars are non-refundable.
Q: Can I change my meal plan selection?
A: No meal plan changes are permitted after June 1, or once your contract is received by Student Services. You may make a change for the Spring Semester during the Dining Plan Change Period of September 15 through October 31. All requests to change meal plans must be made in writing. Please send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org

Flex Dollars are similar to Dining Dollars and may be redeemed at any Dining Service location as well as at other participating outlets on and around campus, like the Barnes & Noble bookstore.
