If you are a resident student, you must be on the Carte Blanch or Carte Blanch Premium plan. For commuter students, you are able to select from any of our available meal plans, but it is not required.
You have the first two weeks of each semester to change between the Carte Blanch and Carte Blanch Premium plans.
Unused meals will not roll over from semester to semester. Declining balance dollars will roll over from the fall to spring semester. However, they will not roll over from academic year to academic year and will expire at the end of the spring semester.
Commuter students have the option of purchasing a block of declining balance dollars. With each purchase, the balance will be on the student's ID card. Declining balance dollars have a $1 for $1 value and may be used at any on campus dining location, including paying the door rate at POPs.
All purchases made with a meal plan are free of sales tax, unlike cash or credit purchases. This applies to student meal plans only. In addition, all declining balance meal plans include bonus dollars. If you purchase a $400 meal plan, you will receive a 25% bonus - that's an additional $100 for free. Any purchase over $250 receives a 20% bonus; purchases over $50 (up to $250) receive a 10% bonus. Commuter student meal plans are paid using your student ID - eliminating the need to carry cash or use your debit or credit card.
Declining balance dollars will roll over from the fall to the spring semester. However, they will not roll over from academic year to academic year and will expire at the end of the spring semester.
