The purpose of this policy is to provide a general overview of the meal plan policies, requirements, and costs for all full-time undergraduate students living on and off campus.

All full-time undergraduate students, whether living on or off campus, are required to purchase a meal plan. Default meal plan charges are automatically placed onto a student's account based on credit hours enrolled.

All requests for, changes to, cancellations of, or exemptions from meal plans must be submitted to the Charger Card Office (Charger Union 131) no later than the last day of the 2nd week of classes each semester. All requests must be submitted electronically through the appropriate request form located on the Charger Card website

Students who prefer the default meal plan should not submit an exemption request. There are no meal plan requirements for part-time, non-residential undergraduate students, but meal plans may be added to the student’s account by request. There are no meal plan requirements during the summer semester, but on-campus dining options are available. Further information can be found on the Charger Card website regarding optional meal plans and available dining locations.

Meal plan requirements and rates for the current semester can be found on the Charger Card website

The Auxiliary Services Office is responsible for the review of this policy every five years (or whenever circumstances require).
