All students living in residence halls except for Omega must participate in a meal plan offered by the College (listed below). This requirement ensures that students are provided with proper nutrition while having the opportunity to engage socially with their peers while dining. New incoming students are automatically enrolled in the Tier A-250 plan, returning students are enrolled in their plan of choice from the prior semester. Meal plan changes are accepted during the first two-weeks of the semester only.
Meal plans can be used in the Continuing Education Center (CEC) Café and the Café Bon Appétit on an "all-you-care-to-eat" basis; once block is used per meal when dining at either location.
Block Meal Plan includes a Flex Dollar feature for added convenience. The Flex Dollar program is a declining balance account that works like a debit card for food. As students spend Flex Dollars the balance is reducing from the account. This feature offers students the option of purchasing items at the Triton's Pub. As an alternative to using a block meal, students may also use Flex Dollars to purchase food for themselves or their guests at the any of the campus dining locations. The amount of Flex Dollars included in each plan varies according to the schedule below:
|Meal Plan Options||Number of Blocks
|Tier A-250||250 Blocks||$ 125|
|Tier A-210||210 Blocks||$ 175|
|Tier B||170 Blocks||$ 225|
|Tier C||130 Blocks||$ 275|
Unused block meals are transferable from fall semester to spring semester if a meal plan of at least equal value is purchased. Flex dollars are transferable from fall semester to spring semester and will expire at the end of the academic year. Additional flex dollars may be purchased at any time during the academic year from the Dining Services office. Unused blocks and flex dollars are not refundable.
