Meal Program Options

Believing that a well-balanced diet is essential for good health, the University requires that all first-year undergraduate students participate in either the Unlimited or the Plus 15, or Plus 13 meal program during the first semester. Second semester first-year students may also participate in the Plus 10 plan with $390 Plus Dollars.

The Unlimited Plan provides complete access to the Dining Rooms for meals or snacks during regular hours of operation. There are no limits to the number of meals that may be eaten during the day or week. This program permits the student to fit his or her meals into the most demanding schedule.

The Plus 15, Plus 13, Plus 10, and Upper-class 10 meal programs allow the student any 10, 13 or 15 of the available meals during the week.

The Semester Programs, which are available to upperclass students, provide either 100, 80, or 50 meals per semester and are especially convenient for students who live off-Grounds or who eat some meals in their residence.
