Meal Plan Update Form Six-week Trial Residents Students living in University Housing for the six-week trial period have the minimum meal plan requirement of $295 for that period. However, if they choose to remain in Housing for the academic year, they will acquire the meal plan requirement and semester rate associated with their class rank and room assignment. The students’ meal fee will be prorated based on this information and the initial deposit on their Charger Card. An additional fee will be charged to their student account for immediate payment, unless they had previously chosen a full semester meal plan that meets or exceeds their requirement. Trial residents may request a full semester meal plan during any time of the trial period. The prorated charge will be calculated by the weekly rate and the number of remaining weeks in the semester at the time the meal plan assignment is made. Once the charge has been determined, we shall calculate the percentage of that amount to the total semester rate. That percentage will be applied to the number of Charger Bucks, Dining Dollars, and or meals to be assigned. The meals of weekly plans will begin upon the effective date of the plan’s assignment. Trial residents have one week following the six-week period to submit a written request for meal plan preference to the Charger Card Office, or they will keep the default plan for their requirement.

Summer Semester Since the majority of our student population takes a break from study during the summer, Dining Services closes all on-campus dining venues except Charger Café, the Bevill Center and Dunkin' Donuts. Their summer patrons mostly consist of conference guests and campers, so the Café's hours of operation are sporadic and menu offerings are limited. The only card account available for use during the summer is Flex.
